Negotiations for Nashua teachers' contract hit a wall; mediators to be brought in


NASHUA - Outside mediators will be brought in to help negotiate a new teachers contract in Nashua after local negotiations hit a wall.

"We will notify the New Hampshire Labor Board that we are at impasse, then both sides - and this is what we're working on now - determine who our mediator will be," Nashua Teachers' Union President Bob Sherman told The Telegraph of Nashua.

The union and the school board will split the costs for the independent third-party mediators, which can run from $300 - $900 per day, plus expenses.

Sherman did not say where the disagreements lie between the union and the school board. He said this process is not unusual, and the last teacher contract negotiation required the assistance of mediators as well.
