Union, School Board Approve Collective Bargaining Agreement for Classified Employees

The Medford School Board and union members have voted to approve a two year collective bargaining agreement for classified employees. A district press release says the agreement "fits within budget resources and preserves jobs." Under the new agreement, most employees will receive an 8-percent raise, and will contribute a fixed amount towards health insurance coverage. The agreement, and one agreed to earlier this year by administrators will reportedly save the school district 20-25 million dollars over 10 years. According to a report in the Medford Mail Tribune, 35 of the district's 477 classified employees will not receives raises, but will still pay towards their insurance coverage.
