Oregon School District, teachers reach tentative deal
With the 2013-14 school year winding down, the Oregon School Board's Human Assets Committee and Oregon Education Association (OEA) have tentatively reached a deal on the 2013-14 collective bargaining agreement, according to a joint press release issued Tuesday by the Oregon School District and OEA.
The bargaining agreement includes a wage increase of 2.07 percent for the teachers (the maximum amount allowed by Act 10), supplemental compensation in the amount of approximately $193 per full-time teacher and continued compensation for teachers completing a master's degree and new teachers completing their Professional Development Plans.
OEA officials plan to vote on whether to approve the tentative agreement on June 3.
The Oregon School Board is set to vote on whether to approve the tentative agreement at its meeting June 9.
If the tentative agreement is approved, the parties hope to begin negotiating the 2014-15 collective bargaining agreement this summer, according to the press release.
