Middlebury-area schools and educators reach contract agreement

MIDDLEBURY — After meeting with a mediator on Thursday school district representatives and educators in the Middlebury area schools have come to an agreement on the principal points for a new teachers contract.
“The Addison Central School District Board and the Addison Central Educators Association reached a tentative agreement on a two-year contract in mediation on June 15,” ACSD Superintendent Peter Burrows said in a release early Friday evening. “Both parties will be bringing forward the tentative agreements to their respective members for ratification next week. 
Burrows said more details on the contract will be available after the parties ratify the agreement, which he anticipated would happen toward the end of next week.
Veteran arbitrator Ira Lobel acted as mediator in an effort to resolve an impasse in negotiations for a new teachers’ contract.
Lobel has more than 30 years’ experience as a federal mediator and has helped resolve hundreds of labor disputes in eastern New York, western Massachusetts and Vermont. 
The meeting of Lobel, ACSD school directors and teachers on Thursday was the first time the two sides had spoken since they confirmed the contract impasse last March.
