Classes at Clark College Cancelled Due to Strike

VANCOUVER, Wash. — More than 400 members of the faculty at Clark College are walking off the job on Monday after 15 months of contract negotiations.  A deadline to reach a settlement passed on Friday night without a deal between the union and administration.

The Clark College Association for Higher Education wants more equitable pay for its members.  Members voted to authorize a strike last month.

Classes are cancelled until a deal is reached.  The college says the campus will remain open and most offices and services will be staffed.  Students just returned from winter break last week.
