The Prosser School District and the Prosser Education Association (PEA) were in negotiations the majority of last week and during the weekend. On Friday afternoon, the Bethel Church hosted Prosser teachers for a meeting where the voting body decided to strike.
Sunday another negotiation meeting began at 4:15 p.m.Though both parties continue to "bargain in good faith," said Fred Brey, President of the PEA, they have been unable to make an agreement. It has been 12 years since the contract between teachers and the district has been negotiated. They met again Monday at 1 p.m. to continue talks.
