  • Boston Teachers Union Calls Impasse In Labor Talks After 18 Months - 05-18-17
    Print Icon May 17, 2017

    By Doug Cunningham

    [Richard Stutman]: "We are at impasse on a lot of issues, but three in particular that prohibit us from making progress on everything else."

    Boston Teachers Union President Richard Stutman. Stutman says among the issues that have deadlocked the new labor contract talks for Boston teachers are salary and classroom sizes for inclusion classrooms - where special ed students are mainstreamed.

    The union has filed a petition for mediation with the Massachusetts Department of Labor Relations.

    Stutman says teachers have been trying to negotiate a new contract in Boston for 18 months. He says the school district isn't bargaining in good faith and says teachers and students are being disrespected by that school district posture with the union.

    [Richard Stutman]: "The schools are underfunded, especially in urban America. Teachers are treated disrespectfully in their collective bargaining."
