Negotiations Stalemate

At last month's negotiating session between the school board and the teachers' union, as soon as the teachers presented their new 3 year proposal of 2% increase the 1st year, 3% the 2nd year, and 4% the 3rd year, Joe Clark, the leader of the school board negotiating team, stood up and started to walk out. He said, "as long as i see any numbers greater than 2, there's nothing to talk about."

The teachers have been without a contract for over 1 year, and the next negotiating meeting is set for the 2nd week in July.
