WAYNESBORO, Pa. — Bargaining teams for the Waynesboro Area School Board and the district’s teachers union met for more than an hour late Tuesday in an impromptu negotiating session.
Leaders from both sides decided during a regularly scheduled board meeting that they would sit down afterward.
Locked in an ongoing contract impasse, school board members and representatives of the Waynesboro Area Education Association last met Dec. 12, 2011, for a negotiating session. No new sessions had been scheduled.
The two sides started meeting at the bargaining table in January 2010 to hammer out a replacement for the teacher contract that expired at the end of the 2010-11 fiscal year.
Tuesday’s meeting provided an opportunity for the bargaining teams to review the existing proposals and look at updated financial information for the district.
