Nurses in Florence picketed their workplace as part of Monday’s May Day observations.

Members of the Oregon Nurses Association – or ONA – are demonstrating against stalled contract negotiations with PeaceHealth Peace Harbor Medical Center.

The Eugene 4J School Board is expected to vote Wednesday to exclude media from its executive sessions on labor negotiations. 

Past practice has permitted media members to attend meetings at which the 4J board planned its negotiations positions and strategy.

The decision to meet privately in the future was initially made in closed session.  The Register-Guard, citing the State's public meetings law, informed 4J their decision must be arrived at openly.  The District will now therefore review the matter at its regular meeting.
