NSCC Labor Agreement Reached

The North­west State Board of Trustees on Fri­day after­noon, unan­i­mously voted to rat­ify the rec­om­men­da­tions pro­vided by a third party fact-finding orga­ni­za­tion and end an ongo­ing labor dis­pute. Accord­ing to the Cres­cent News, the North­west State Com­mu­nity Col­lege Edu­ca­tion Asso­ci­a­tion voted to rat­ify the new con­tract for the school’s edu­ca­tors. The fac­ulty will oper­ate under a con­tract that reaches back to August 2014 and extends to August 2017. The teach­ers, who were work­ing under a pay freeze for the past few years, will now see a 2-percent increase in salary on a yearly basis. One of the main items in the third-party rec­om­men­da­tion was the estab­lish­ment of a labor man­age­ment com­mit­tee in order to facil­i­tate com­mu­ni­ca­tion for other ongo­ing dis­putes, includ­ing con­tract bar­gain­ing for non-teaching staff. The full State Employ­ment Rela­tions Board report will be released today online at the SERB web­site, serb.state.oh.us.
