Mediator Involved In Ottawa Teacher Negotiations

Posted by wlpo on October 31, 2012

Despite having a mediator involved and working on an expired contract, one of the Ottawa teacher’s union negotiators says don’t expect another strike.

Steve Johnson says with all the teacher’s strikes this year in Illinois and Ottawa’s lengthy one in 2009, he understands it’s on people’s minds.  Johnson says they plan to negotiate until a mutually agreeable contract can be signed.  He says the superintendent and school board president both say they’re not going to impose a contract which bodes well for continued good faith bargaining.

The next meeting between Ottawa teachers, the school board and a mediator is November 7th.
