Spokesmen for both sides in the stalled contract talks between the Manchester teachers union and school district released a joint statement Sunday saying they have rejected each other’s most recent offers, with no future negotiation sessions scheduled.
The most recent agreement with the more than 1,100 members of the MEA expired on June 30, 2018. In September, Manchester Education Association President Sue Hannan and Rich Girard, chairman of the Manchester Board of School Committee’s Special Committee on Negotiations, characterized a nearly three-hour meeting between the two sides as “constructive,” leading some to hope a deal might soon be reached.
