MANCHESTER - City Hall was a sea of red inside and out as hundreds of Manchester teachers took their message to the streets.
Last week, the Board of Alderman approved their contract 7-3, only to be overturned by the mayor.
Mayor Ted Gatsas defends his veto as a move to stay within the tax cap, citing a report by the city finance chair that points to $700,000 deficits in the second and third years of the contract.
Ben Dick is outgoing president of the Manchester Education Association.
He calls it a tough blow to the teachers who are going on three years without a contract.
Superintendent Dr. Debra Livingston suggested her contract be tabled. She told the School Committee she will not take a raise or negotiate her contract until the teachers have a contract.
The mayor’s ruling will stand, but it has hundreds of teachers looking ahead to the election.
