MFT Negotiations

Minneapolis Public Schools and the Minneapolis Federation of Teachers are currently negotiating a successor contract in effect between 2019 and 2021.  

May 2 Session

At the last bargaining session on May 2, 2019, the District shared the financial costs of the first four MFT proposals, engaged in additional conversation around the prior proposals, and MFT passed a fifth proposal addressing specialists within their unit (educators such as art, music and library/media science teachers) and technology.

April 18 Session

The District and MFT met for its third bargaining session on April 18th; the April 11th session was closed due to inclement weather.  The teams engaged in a robust and lengthy conversation about the class size and prep time proposals passed at the March 21st session, in an effort to seek a better understanding of the intent behind the proposals.  MFT also passed a proposal focusing on clean and healthy buildings (Article 12; attached).


March 21 Session

The District and MFT bargaining teams met for the second negotiations session on Thursday, March 21.  After another round of friendly introductions, MFT shared their first set of proposals.  Educators in the room spoke passionately about their personal experiences, and those of their colleagues, on the subjects of opening week preparation time, class size, and special education and related services caseloads. MFT’s proposals can be viewed here.

The teams will reconvene for another session after Spring Break, on April 11, 2019
