Please note, the new evaluation booklet you received yesterday was part of our negotiations with CPS as outlined in our contract. It is also part of an in service training you are to receive either individually or as group from your FM and or LFM. If you have not been in serviced, I am sure it will be occurring soon. If by  the end of next week you have not received this training please let me know via email, and give me the FM’s name and your school as well as the LFM’s name. All Fm’s and LFM’s were trained in this new process. Your Vice President Denis Lechowicz and my self attended those same training sessions, so we both heard everything that your FM and LFM were trained  about in this new process.

Operations has informed me that they have stopped taking replies on the present bid sheet. There are some issues that I will be working with Operations to resolve and the sheet will be re-advertised and a move will be some time after September 15th



Bill Iacullo, President



There is a bid sheet posted on “Green Sheets”.

Please note there are some discrepancies that have been noted and I am working with Operations to correct them.  If you bid a school and the pay lane is incorrect, the union will grieve the incorrect pay lane.
