On Wednesday, August 29, 2007, at the Arnone School, 130 new teachers were welcomed at a 2-day orientation session sponsored by the Brockton Public Schools. Among the speakers welcoming the new staff was Mr. Timothy Sullivan, President of the BEA. Mr. Sullivan explained the importance of being active in the association, attending the 2 general membership meetings held each year, and because this is an election year, he encouraged all those living in Brockton to be sure to register and to vote in the primary and final elections in the fall. Mr. Sullivan explained that the current BEA contract is in its last year of a three year agreement; he further indicated that the negotiations process for the 2008-2011 contract will begin in September and that bargaining will most likely commence in March of 2008.
