EAGLE POINT, Ore. — For over a year the Eagle Point School District and the employees union have been in contract negotiations.
A final attempt at an agreement started at 1 p.m., Monday afternoon. As of 6 a.m. Tuesday morning, over 16 hours later, no solution had been made, and teachers began a strike.
The district had already closed all schools for Monday and Tuesday, but after the teachers began their strike district officials closed schools for the rest of the week and plan to reopen without the striking teachers Monday, May 14th.
The only exceptions to the school closures are varsity athletics, senior spring board presentations, and the High School’s FFA plan sale. The Eagle Point School District has set up a hotline with more information at 541-830-6698.
