Nothing in any collective bargaining agreement between the
Amherst-Pelham Regional School Committee and a recognized bargaining
agent for an appropriate unit of employees shall be deemed to derogate
from or impair any power, right or duty possessed by the Amherst,
Pelham, or Regional School Committees, except where such right, power or
duty is specifically limited by a legally valid provision of a
collective bargaining agreement.
In the event of a conflict between the provisions of a collective
bargaining agreement and any policy or procedure set forth in the Policy
Manual, then said collective bargaining agreement will prevail to the
extent permitted by relevant laws.
It is expressly understood that no School Committee member other than
the Regional School Committee Chair (or his/her designee) will make any
statements or issue any press releases in regard to negotiations. The
Chair and the Superintendent (or his/her designee) are authorized to
make joint statements that they deem to be in the best interests of the
Committee. In the absence of the Chair, the Superintendent (or his/her
designee) may operate under this authorization.
