Members of the South Burlington Educators' Association say teachers are entering into their fourth month without a contract—and they remain the only teachers in Chittenden County without one.

Negotiations between the association and board stopped in August, according to the SBEA.

“Our message is clear, we’re ready to compromise, we’re ready to get back to the table,” said SBEA Chief Negotiator Eric Stone.” “We’ve invited them multiple times back to the table and they’ve just refused—obviously that’s not sustainable. We need to come back to the table as soon as possible to negotiate a contract.”

No word on when the school board and teachers will meet next.
