Re: “Burlington Teachers Vote to Strike If Contract Battle Is Not Resolved

Is the Burlington Education Association (Teachers Union) making itself irrelevant? Each contract cycle, they behave exactly the same: Refusal to meet. Refusal to compromise. Attack the integrity of the school board and administration. Attempt to create a crisis by running the clock out. If the BEA wont come to the table ready to negotiate realistically, why should the school board and administration waste so much of their time coddling their bad behavior. Burlington teachers make an average of $70,000 a year, get generous health care, pension and other benefits and summers off. Their complaint is that they couldnt get 1% more?

Pigs get fat, hogs get slaughtered. It is time for the School Board to stand up for the taxpayers in the City. Parents, don't let a few greedy teachers hold your children hostage. If teachers don't want to teach, it's time to replace them.

Re: “Groups Supporting Burlington Ballot Items Spend $30,000

Miro's campaign to give the developer of the 14 story mall $22 Million and eliminate zoning for his project is all glossy high priced color mailings and food giveaways. The vote no on #3 & #4 campaign appears to be much more authentic, grass roots and based on facts. It troubles me that anyone thinks Burlington voters can be bought the way Mayor Weinberger apparently believes they can.

Re: “Burlington Teachers Vote to Strike if Next Negotiating Session Fails

Beth Brodie: you appear to be acting out in anger, not rationality. Your prior contract, that the NEA negotiated, spoke of paying teachers the "middle of the middle" but that contract is over. The BEA took a harsh, take no prisoners approach to the proposed contract and the school board could not accommodate their demands within the very real constraints on their budget. Yet they still delivered a pay rate which is above the "middle of the middle."

Are you upset that the administrators that have to deal with you get paid for doing so? By your own admission you are paid more than most teachers in the county. The independent fact finder did not have to balance the school's district's budget. Tell us, without all the dramatic outrage: What is so unfair about the school board's proposal? You have no choice to strike? . . Why? The BEA says it's not about money . . it is ego? Do you want to trash the education system in Burlington until someone will give you some little gold stars on your forehead?

Re: “Burlington Teachers Vote to Strike if Next Negotiating Session Fails

Mark Lade, you are flat out wrong. See if for yourself here: http://district.bsd.schoolfusion.us/module…

See Page 7.

Burlington School teacher's median pay for FY16 was $71,624 + $1,900 average salary increase for FY17 = $73,524/yr for 9 months of work. That is equivalent to a 12 month salary of $98,000+.

Just stickin' to the facts . .

Re: “Burlington Teachers Vote to Strike if Next Negotiating Session Fails

Teacher's Union to Burlington Students, Parents & Taxpayers:
GIMMIE another $400 /yr, on top of the $1,900 you already did, or we are going to trash your schools and leave your students on the sidewalk. How are we supposed to get by on $74,000+ /yr??
