Teachers and the school boards in the Southwest Vermont Supervisory Union have failed to reach agreement on a labor contract raising the possibility that teachers could vote to strike.
The two sides met on August 3rd but did not make progress.
The school boards voted to impose a contract on the teachers in June, which the teachers could either accept, return to the negotiating table or go on strike.
Local union President Stephannie Peters told the Bennington Banner that the union will meet with members on August 29th to answer questions. She says on August 31st, teachers will be asked to vote on what to do next.
The supervisory union includes the Bennington and Mount Anthony Union school districts and North Bennington, Pownal, Shaftsbury and Woodford schools.
