This paper presents a study of the relationship between the Central Kitsap Education Association and the Central Kitsap School District. The Association went to impasse with the District on May 31, 1972. This study will examine how the negotiations process broke down to cause such a situation. A close look will be given to the procedural and legal relations between the District and Association. Recommendations will be given as a result of an analysis of the District-Association relationship. The major recommendation will be joint definition of terms.
