Rapid City school paraprofessionals may lose union representation

Working behind closed doors, the Rapid City School Board has again filed paperwork to break up an employees' union.

The board sent a petition to the state’s Department of Labor last week to decertify union representation for the district’s paraprofessionals.

Around this time last year, the school board filed to decertify Teamsters Local 120, the union that represented support services employees, such as custodians and bus drivers. The local dissolved shortly thereafter.

The board’s most recent action sprouted from a discussion held during an executive session, a type of meeting that is closed to the public. The move has triggered a to-be-scheduled election in which the paraprofessionals will vote whether they want the Rapid City Education Association — the teachers' union — to continue representing them, as it has for more than 20 years.
