Bargaining Team Members

SPFE’s Bargaining Team is responsible for negotiating contracts for all of our bargaining units with the district. Appointed by the Executive Board, the Bargaining Team represents all of our members in negotiations. For the first time in SPFE history, we have one team that is representative of our membership as a whole.

Our primary goal during bargaining is to make sure that Saint Paul Public Schools is an excellent place to work and a great place for kids to learn. Our contract is the strongest tool we have to achieve high-quality, racially equitable public schools. That is why our members work closely with the community to craft our demands, and we rely on collective action to improve our schools for our students and our members.
