Waynesboro teachers, board set negotiations

May 16, 2012

WAYNESBORO, Pa. — The Waynesboro Area School District’s teachers and school board likely will continue contract negotiations this weekend.

On Tuesday, the Waynesboro Area School Board invited the teachers union to a weekend negotiating session. The two sides first met at the bargaining table in early 2010 as they tried to hammer out a new contract.

Former Fairfield (Pa.) Area School District Superintendent Gary Miller offered to serve as a facilitator for the proposed weekend session.

Details still were being finalized Wednesday, according to Mike Engle, president of the teachers union, the Waynesboro Area Education Association.

Engle said the session likely will be held.

The Waynesboro Area Education Association authorized a strike last week, but has not announced dates for a possible strike.

“The community would know 48 hours before a strike would occur,” Engle said.

Under Pennsylvania law, the teachers could strike only for a number of days that would not cause school to be in session later than June 15.
