Teachers And School Board To Meet With Mediator

Sep 12, 2017

Teachers in Burlington will not be going on strike on Wednesday after the union and school board have agreed to meet with a mediator.

The teachers had voted last week to go on strike Wednesday if the board didn't return to the negotiating table and reach a settlement.

The school board and teachers' union plan to meet with the mediator on Wednesday.

The teachers' union said Tuesday that it will be ready to negotiate a contract that at least covers this year.

The union says if no agreement is reached, the strike will start Thursday.
