Union, college schedule mediation session for March 29
A March 22 meeting between leaders of the Mt. Hood Community College Faculty Association and the board's bargaining team yielded no progress in negotiations over a new contract.
However, another mediation session will take place Tuesday, March 29, according to according to Sara Williams, the Faculty Association's bargaining chairman.
The faculty has been working without a contract since Aug. 31, 2010. On Feb. 14, the board declared an impasse in contract negotiations with the association, which represents about 160 full-time instructors. Mediation sessions since then have failed to produce an agreement.
