South Burlington School Board wants mediation

SOUTH BURLINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) The South Burlington School Board says it wants to get back to the negotiating table and it's calling in a mediator to help.

The board imposed a contract on teachers earlier this month after talks broke down.

Teachers said they'd open up negotiations once the imposition is lifted.

In a news release Friday, the board says it won't lift the imposed contract, but because it wants to speed up talks it is going ahead and contacting a mediator.
