Tentative Agreement Reached on Teacher Contract

3-year contract agreement must be ratified by association members and approved by school board 

The Eugene Education Association and Eugene School District 4J bargaining teams have reached a tentative agreement on the final issues under negotiation for a new 3-year contract. Important provisions include:

• Continuing competitive compensation with fair salary increases for every teacher every year: 2.1% COLA (cost of living increase) in 2017–18, 1.8% in 2018–19, 2.0% in 2019–20

• Providing elementary teachers more preparation time during the school day and students more PE, music or other specialized instruction 

• Developing a common calendar that will provide equitable instruction time 

Before the agreement becomes final it must be approved by the teacher association’s leadership, its members, and the school board. A ratification meeting is tentatively scheduled on Tuesday, Nov. 14. If members ratify the agreement, the Eugene School Board will then vote on approval of the agreement at an upcoming board meeting.

The collective bargaining agreement applies to 4J’s teachers and licensed specialists such as counselors, nurses and librarians.
