VT. Teachers Strike Enters Sixth Day

http://stream.publicbroadcasting.net/production/mp3/wamc/local-wamc-991184.mp3

Bennington, VT – Teachers in southwest Vermont are in their sixth day of a strike. WAMC's Tristan O'Neill reports...

The union representing the teachers has been in negotiations with the school boards over a new contract.

The teachers union said talks were suspended Tuesday after the boards said the salary data they had been using was "deeply flawed" and needed time to correct the information.

The boards have not issued a statement since Monday night.

Talks were expected to resume Wednesday morning. The issues up for discussion include salaries, health insurance and time spent with students.
