North Boone Teachers May Strike March 3rd

In a statement, teachers say they may strike March 3rd

The NBEA announced Monday they will go on strike March 3rd if an agreement is not reached. The union is opposed to a proposed "two-tier" salary schedule.  Union leaders claim it's just a way to permanently lower wages for new teachers, but the district argues that is not the case, and that it would raise those teacher's salaries by 3%

The group held a rally Monday before the North Boone School Board meeting with Debra Torrison reading a statement. The district and the union are scheduled to meet with a federal mediator on Feb. 25-26.
