Contracts still an issue for Williston teachers

WILLISTON, N.D. (AP) — Teachers in Williston and the school board continue to struggle to come to terms on a contract for the current school year.

Contract negotiations earlier ended in an impasse, mainly over salary increases and leave time for teachers. A state fact-finding commission held a hearing last month and recently issued recommendations.

The Minot Daily News reported that the school board has accepted the recommendations, which included the board’s final salary offer. Teachers still dispute some of the recommendations.
