School district, teachers union keep talking

Contract negotiations will continue Monday between Portland Public Schools and the Portland Association of teachers.

Teachers are scheduled to strike Thursday if no contract agreement is reached. Negotiations can continue during the strike.

The school district presented a new proposal during mediated negotiations on Sunday. It released a statement yesterday which said, "Today, in a meeting with the state mediator, the PPS bargaining team presented the PAT bargaining team with a comprehensive mediation proposal for settlement in response to the settlement proposal PAT presented on Thursday. PAT is continuing to review the proposal and the teams have agreed to continue negotiations Monday, Feb. 17.”
