|Teacher Contract Negotiations
Building a New Collective Bargaining Agreement for our Teachers
The Medford School District and the Medford Education Association maintain a labor contract for our licensed teachers. The contract establishes pay, benefits and work rules that are fair for employees and support good service for students. Contract changes are negotiated during collective bargaining and must be approved by association members and the School Board.
Most contracts last from one to three years and expire on June 30 of a designated year. The most recent teachers’ contract ran from July 1, 2011, through June 30, 2013. In December 2013, the School Board implemented a 3-year contract. The rules for that contract remain in place while bargaining teams from each side negotiate a new agreement.
