CLARKSTON, WA - The Clarkston Classified Association continued to bargain their contracts Monday afternoon with the Clarkston School District.

The group, made up of learning assistance teachers, are currently working without a contract because their previous contract expired just before school started.

Supporters and members of the group wore red and rallied outside of the district's main office Monday afternoon as both sides returned to the bargaining table. CCA Members Communication Coordinator Angie Gustafson said they're ready to finish up the bargaining so the members can focus on school.

"The Clarkston Classified Association's coming to the table tonight with the offer that we bargain tonight, until we're done," said Gustafson. "Even if it takes all night, we need to get this done, we need to get this over with."

Gustafson said employee safety and minimal salary increases are something the CCA is focusing on tonight at the bargaining table.
