Tentative agreement reached in NMC faculty contract negotiations

TRAVERSE CITY — Northwestern Michigan College (NMC) and the Faculty Association affiliates of the Michigan Education Association are pleased to announce they have reached a tentative agreement on all contract issues.

The faculty association members will be advised of the details of the agreement prior to a ratification meeting scheduled for Tuesday, October 8.

If approved by association members, the NMC Board of Trustees would review and vote on the agreement in an upcoming public meeting.

Both parties met with a state mediator Wednesday, October 2 to continue negotiations after the release of a non-binding Fact Finder’s Report from the Michigan Employment Relations Commission (MERC) on remaining issues in late August. The contracts expired December 31, 2018.
