Rutland Town teachers may strike, city teachers have deal
Rutland, Vermont - May 28, 2010
Teachers in Rutland Town are threatening to strike. Contract talks broke down this week with the school board imposing an agreement that includes no raises for the next year.
Meanwhile, teachers in Rutland City have a new three-year contract. 300 educators and professional staff will receive 3-percent pay raises each year. Teachers will continue to pay 10-percent of their health care costs, despite a vote on Town Meeting Day to double it.
