In response, Prior emailed uaa 16 administration and requested to meet with members of the bargaining unit to discuss concerns about the training that took place on January 14. First of all, we address the question of whether the cooperative district is linked to the KNA in the context of the employer`s succession analysis. The general rule that an ordinary contract does not bind the non-consensual successors of a contracting party “does not apply to a collective agreement intended to regulate all aspects of the complex relationship between the employer and the worker”. American Fed`n Local 298 v. Manchester, 116 N.H. 665, 667, 366 A.2d 874, 876 (1976). While the employment relationship does not change much, such continuity promotes the expectations of the social partners and is desirable insofar as it maintains the stability of the employment relationship between the parties. In March 1996, the voters of Exeter and the area towns accepted a proposal to transform, with effect from 1 July 1997, the AREA agreements for classes 7 to 12 into a cooperative district for classes 6 to 12. See RSA 195:18 (1989 and Supp.1997) (amended in 1996); RSA 195-A:15, I (1989).
The cooperation agreement provides for pupils in grades 6 to 8 in Exeter and the towns of the region to attend a cooperative secondary school and classes 9 to 12 in a cooperative high school. The co-operative district agreed to purchase the Exeter School District High School and Junior High School, including the land, buildings, development and equipment. The agreement states that for the rest of the school year: fourthly, we consider that the public is served. In this case, there is perfect symmetry between the municipalities that participated in the AREA agreements and the municipalities participating in the cooperative district. In the Co-operative District, the AREA towns, which had sent students previously taught to the Exeter School District, now have a voice in the administration and management of the Co-operative District. The only difference is the inclusion of sixth graders in the co-operative district. The joint agreement was signed on Thursday, April 16 by SAU 16 and the New Hampshire branch of the National Education Association (NEA-NH), which represents teacher and paraprofessional unions for UAA districts, and went into effect immediately. This temporary agreement only applies to the remainder of the 2019-20 school year and does not replace current collective agreements within the district.
