AP Wirephoto Bar Employe Appeals Case to Tama Court Teachers Reject Clear Creek Offer TIFFIN - TTic Clear Creek teachers last week rejected the latest offer from the school board on salaries for the 1974-75 school year. Another negotiating session will be Thursday. The board boosted its offer slightly at a special negotiating session Wednesday evening, from $7,400 to $7,500 base. But Clear Creek Education Assn. President Arbs Swartzendruber said the three-member teacher committee was not authorized to accept that low a figure. The teachers have been asking for a raise from the present $7,100 base to $7,900. In its lengthy session, however. the board and the teachers did negotiate and agree on a number of non-salary items. The board agreed to pay IOO percent of the cost of health insurance for faculty members this year. The district now pays 60 percent and the individual employe 40 percent. The state’s new collective bar-! gaining legislation, signed Tuesday by the governor, goes into effect July I. In the event the teachers and board haven’t agreed by then, the question could go to mediation and arbitration under the new legislation. In discussing thc salary question with the teachers, Burton told them there isn’t any more money in thc district's budget for next year for teacher salaries. < TW Ants K'srl coj»«c*. > 68 fatal motorcycles crashes.
