Perris teachers rally at mediation session

Perris Elementary Teachers Association (PETA) members were joined by parents and students at a rally supporting their bargaining team during the state mediation session held at the Perris Elementary School District office.  After many months of negotiations, PETA is at impasse with Perris Elementary School District (PESD). Teachers chanted their support while sharing  concerns that substandard pay in Perris will not be competitive with surrounding districts as PESD competes to recruit new teachers. Without intervention, those problems bringing the next generation of teachers to Perris will only worsen.

Confidentiality agreements prevent negotiators from divulging any details of the proceedings. Mediation may end in an agreement or the certification of the impasse to an official State Factfinder if mediation proves unsuccessful.
