LCS Board of Education approves contract with Lapeer Educational Support Personnel

Lapeer Community Schools is pleased to announce ratification of a new contract with the Lapeer Educational Support Personnel (LESP) union. The LESP represents the District’s paraprofessionals and the majority of our secretarial staff. Last month, members of the District’s bargaining team met with the leadership of the LESP to finalize the terms of a two-year contract. The contract includes several modifications to working requirements and compensation structures. The LCS Board of Education unanimously approved the contract at a special meeting on Thursday night.

“We are pleased to have come to an agreement that is amenable to both parties, and we look forward to maintaining a strong working relationship into the future,” said LCS Superintendent Matt Wandrie. “As a district, we remain committed to the process, bargaining in good faith and always seeking new and innovative ways to compensate our employees, even in the midst of hard times.”

To date, the District has ratified contracts with six of seven bargaining units without wage or salary schedule reductions. Each unit bargains independently with the District on the terms of their contract.
