BELLINGHAM - Bellingham Technical College will hold its first day of classes Monday, Sept. 30, after two unions that represent the faculty and the college's classified, clerical, technical, instructional and retail support staff ratified contract agreements late Sunday, Sept. 29. The board of trustees will hold a special meeting Monday to approve the agreements.
Details of the 3- and 4-year contracts with the Bellingham Education Association and Bellingham Education Support Team will be available online at btc.ctc.edu. The new instructional calendar for fall quarter will also be on the school website.
The agreements came after a weeklong strike that delayed the start of classes while the parties negotiated pay increases and contract language.
Financial aid will be disbursed starting Monday afternoon.
