Verona’s teachers have been working without a contract since last June and talking to the Board of Education about a new one. Ditto Montclair. Now comes word that teacher contract talks in Montclair have broken down.

According to Barista Kids, the Montclair BOE has filed a “Notice of Impasse” with regard to the Montclair Education Association. The BOE is offering salary increases of 2.8%, 2.6% and 2.4% over the three years of the contract. The MEA wants 3%, 2.9%, and 2.8%. The BOE is also offering to pay teachers more to teach larger classes.

The MEA has announced that its members will begin “working to contract” today, February 26. You can read more details on the contract talks on Barista Kids here.
