SRC, Teachers Reach Contract Agreement

Jan 23, 2013

A lengthy bargaining session between Spoon River College and the Spoon River College Faculty Association yielded the desired result: a tentative contract agreement.

The mediated talks began Tuesday afternoon and ended around midnight.

Contract details are not yet being released. The SRCFA will meet Friday afternoon to discuss the agreement. Its members could take a vote during that meeting.

It’s not known when the Board of Trustees will consider the contract. It won’t take a vote until after the package is ratified by teachers.

The SRCFA represents 34 full-time teachers. They have been working without a contract since August. Teachers agreed this month to file a ten day “Intent to Strike” notice, though no date for a walkout was ever scheduled.

SRC has campuses in Canton, Macomb, Rushville, and Havana.
