Collective Bargaining Agreement

Dear Members of the German School Society,

The Board of Directors of the German School Washington D.C. together with the Employees’ Association of the German School Washington D.C. (EA) announce with great pleasure the conclusion of the Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) negotiations and the signing of the CBA in June 2016. The new CBA serves as a solid foundation for the employment of represented German School Washington D.C. faculty and staff and will remain in effect until August 31, 2020.

Both the Board of Directors and the Employees’ Association appreciate the constructive manner in which negotiations were conducted, which we believe yielded a positive outcome for all. This is a reflection of the strong collaborative and productive working relationship the Board of Directors and the Employees’ Association have established over the past two years and reaffirms our mutual commitment to the long-term quality and success of the German School Washington D.C. and its students.

Your Board of Directors                                                     The Employees’ Association
