Teacher salary talks will resume

Negotiations regarding the Lake Tahoe Unified School District’s teacher salaries will continue this week.

The school board will discuss the most recent mediations in closed session at its meeting Tuesday, said LTUSD Business Manager Ralph Johnson, and Wednesday the state-appointed mediator will return.

This will be the fourth meeting with the mediator since May 27.

“The mediator would not keep coming back if he didn’t think we were making progress,” Johnson said. “His job is to try to work out an agreement, and he’ll keep doing it as long as he thinks he’s effective.”

Negotiations began in August 1997, and the mediator was appointed when the teachers and the district reached an impasse.

If the mediator is unable to resolve the situation, a fact-finding team will be the next step.

However, the district does not feel that will be necessary.

“I think we’ve made progress each time we’ve gotten together (with the mediator),” Johnson said.
