BERNE — The district’s third and final expired bargaining agreement was settled within the 2013-14 school year, approved without opposition on June 16, the last regular Berne-Knox-Westerlo board meeting for Interim Superintendent Lonnie Palmer.

School board member Vasilios Lefkaditis said his calculations showed a more grim outlook for the school's future budget decisions than administrators had presented. The agreement with Berne-Knox-Westerlo Teacher Support Staff was approved with three out of five in favor.

After months of increasingly bitter disputes, the village and Voorheesville Area Ambulance Service, on the cusp of a new contract, are working together to resolve differences.

The Guilderland school district has agreed to annual raises from 1 to 2 percent for two small units — nine administrators and seven technology workers.

Many aids and monitors work part-time for the school district just to get health insurance for their families, according to a Guilderland negotiator. For their next contract, the unit's president says, they will push for health benefits after retirement.
