Head Of Burlington Teachers Union Calls Suggested Working Conditions 'Insulting'

Sep 22, 2016

Tensions are running high between the Burlington School Board and the city's teachers union. After unsuccessful contract talks, the board moved to impose working conditions on teachers last week, without their approval.

This week, teachers unanimously rejected that move, saying it will cause "division, chaos and confrontation." Fran Brock, president of the Burlington Education Association, spoke with VPR about the back-and-forth.
