MEDFORD, Ore. — The Medford Teacher’s Association and the school district are taking some time and resting up before for the next negotiation. After 21 hours of negotiating, a deal was not met and teachers went on strike at 6 a.m. Thursday morning.
The next bargaining session is set for 8 a.m. on Saturday. A limited number of bargainers will be there. Teachers say many of them have administrative responsibilities and have to help prepare for what happens next.
At this point, parents can plan for classes to be canceled on Monday, even if a deal is met this weekend. School is expected to resumes on Tuesday with or without teachers.
