Medford School District & Teachers Prepare for Strike
The Medford School District and the teacherís union conducted an eight plus hour state mediated negotiating session Tuesday with no new agreements announced nor was there a date set to meet again.
The two sides did not meet face to face but dealt with mediators from the Oregon Employment Relations Board. New proposals were exchanged by both sides but no details were released.
The District is preparing should the teachers follow through with a threatened strike on February 6th. They are advertising around the state for K-12 Oregon licensed teachers offering about $171 per five-hour shift and a per diem for expenses plus a round trip mileage reimbursement.
