DOWAGIAC — Southwestern Michigan College and its faculty union have reached a tentative agreement on a new contract to run through June 2023. Details of the proposed agreement won’t be divulged until after the union votes next week and the board votes on Nov. 18, SMC President David Mathews said Wednesday.

Mathews reported that the two sides held a negotiation session Monday and hammered out the final outstanding issues standing in the way of a new contract. If no agreement had been reached Monday, they would have met with a fact finder later this week.
