Oregon City Schools announced an agreement has been reached with the Oregon City Federation of Teachers, saving the district over $3 million during the course of the next three years.
“It’s been a culmination of a long process,” Superintendent Dr. Michael Zalar said. “We got started late in the spring and it’s carried over into the summer. We’ve kept the board informed along the way regarding the terms and the conditions and some of the language that has been negotiated.
Members of the Oregon City Federation of Teachers approved a three-year contract on Tuesday that will save money for the Oregon City Schools District.
“We had a general membership meeting early in the morning on Tuesday and ratified a tentative agreement,” said David Shafer, president of the 250-member union.
Shafer said he could not provide details of the agreement because the school board has not yet approved it. It is expected to go before the board next Wednesday.
