Tahoe Truckee Unified and teachers at impasse on contract negotiations

Teachers in the Tahoe Truckee Unified School District rejected a contract offer from the school district this week and asked the state to send a mediator to help the two sides come to an agreement.

The Tahoe Truckee Education Association and district could not come to an agreement on salary, health benefits, class size, time off and hours of employment.

“We have been working diligently without a salary contract this year and we’ve been proposing contract language that would provide our teachers with the support and resources our students need to continue succeeding,” said TTEA President Nik Fertitta in a news release. “We want a contract that offers a competitive salary schedule that will help attract and keep the best teachers for our students.”
