44. It sounds like they're increasing the teacher's pay in exchange for more work
...pretty normal stuff. It also sounds like the school days there are pretty short by any standard, so it would be better for the kids to have them lengthened.

I imagine the union is opposing it in reaction to the stalled pay raise. Incentives are fine, but a higher baseline is better, from a wage-earner's standpoint...and then the way the incentive is done does undermine the union.

The ins and outs aren't really knowable without being there at the table, so much of it winds up hinging on who is negotiating in good faith, who is putting the kids first, who is doing their best to get everyone together for an agreement that works. Its possible that both sides are in the wrong - I just hope the kids don't have to deal with any fallout, as nobody really gets a good second chance to go through school, if the first time didn't get the job done.
