Tukwila School District sets public hearing to discuss open collective bargaining resolution

Hearing scheduled for 5:30 p.m. Jan. 23

The Tukwila School District Board of Directors will have a public hearing from 5:30-6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 23, to discuss open collective bargaining.

Last July, the board approved Resolution No. 855, which changed the board’s policy to conduct labor-management contract negotiations in open public meetings. State law does not require negotiations to take place in open meetings.

The hearing will be at the Tukwila School District administration office, 4640 S. 144th St.
