Eagle Point teachers and the Reynolds Education Association in Multnomah County both have voted to go on strike. Joyce Rosenau, who heads the Reynolds Education Association, says one of their objections is that school districts want the right to reopen and re-negotiate parts of the contract any time. “Every step that we have taken is to get a settlement: We declared impasse to get a settlement; we are taking a strike vote to get a settlement. That’s all we want. Negotiating for over a year, every time, to get a contract is not an ok way to go.” Rosenau says the district originally raised far more points to negotiate than the teachers, and the two sides remain at a standstill over many of them. The strike is set for May 21st.
