SOUTH BURLINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) The South Burlington teachers union and the school board will try to iron out a new contract Wednesday.

The hope is that a mediator will be able to help the two sides get over the major stumbling blocks-- salaries and benefits.

Negotiations began in October but the union and school board have yet to agree on a deal for the 2019-2020 school year.

In 2017, the two sides spent a year negotiating a new contract.
