Despite an announcement earlier this month saying progress was being made in talks with city teachers on a new contract, the chair of the school district’s negotiations committee said Monday discussions have now stalled.
In a statement issued Monday, School Board Negotiations Committee Chairman Rich Girard announced negotiators for the Manchester Education Association (MEA) informed the committee of their decision to go to mediation.
Girard said as a result, there will be no further contract discussions until the mediation session, currently scheduled for March 21, takes place.
