Ringwood teachers want contract terms settled by Holly Stewart

“There’s a building consensus among our members that our role is undervalued,” Odgers said.

She said the teachers’ union has spent all but 10 months of the past five years negotiating this contract as well as the one that preceded it. A three-year agreement effective July 1, 2012 through June 30, 2015 was not settled until early in 2014.

“It’s the ultimate show of disrespect to endlessly delay this process,” said Odgers.
