Portland teachers return to the classroom Monday

Written by Mike Turner on January 2, 2014

Portland Teachers will return to classes Monday as their union continues to negotiate with Portland Public Schools for a new contract.

Oregon Education Association Vice President Deborah Barnes tells us that negotiations will be extended through Monday and Portland Association of Teachers President Gwen Sullivan says a mediator will be on hand for that meeting.

Barnes says teachers plan to stay on the job and that the union will do whatever is needed to keep the lines of communication open.
