|The process Carl Sandburg College officials say has worked very well in negotiating contracts with its teachers union has worked yet again.
College officials announced Friday that the C-S-C Board of Trustees has approved a new extension of the ongoing contract with the Sandburg Education Association.
The current deal was set to expire in 2014 -- but college officials now say the deal extends to 2016, and will provide pay raises of nearly four percent in 2015 and 2016.
College officials say in a press release that the type of rolling negotiation process they use allows the best attention to be paid to students and their success -- what they call interest-based bargaining.
The press release states that the S-E-A and the college are pleased with the process and its results.
