Nashua teachers, school board reach tentative labor deal
"The board and the Nashua Teachers Union had two very productive mediation sessions last week, and we are still working on language surrounding mediation discussions," said BOE Chairman Robert Hallowell. "As usual, both the NTU and the board must review and approve any potential agreement before it can move forward in the process."
Still, news of a tentative agreement is a positive note in the negotiations that stalled in early August when the union declared an impasse and an independent arbitrator was brought in to mediate the contract talks.
"Now it will go through the process," said Mosher.
Once the negotiating teams for both sides have worked through the details, the contract will go through several stages of approval."It needs to be ratified by the teachers, and approved by the Board of Education," said Mosher. "Then it needs the approval of the Board of Aldermen and the mayor."
