South Butler Teachers Reject Latest Offer

Another negotiating session will take place today at 5 o'clock, but union spokesperson Butch Santicola says he's pessimistic about a settlement because the school board has indicated it will not compromise on its latest salary offer, and health care is still an open issue as well.

Santicola says the factfinder last spring recommended, and the board at one time accepted, a salary figure 1% higher than what the board now calls its final offer. Misinformation from the board has turned the public against the teachers, according to Santicola.
