Fargo Teachers Union Takes Board to Court Over Stalled Talks
The teachers want a judge to order the board to resume contract talks.
FARGO, N.D.–The union representing public school teachers in North Dakota’s largest city is taking the school board to court over a stalemate on contract negotiations.
The Fargo Education Association believes the board broke state law by declaring an impasse without union approval. The teachers want a judge to order the board to resume contract talks.
Teacher safety and pay are issues that have separated the two sides. Teachers in North Dakota do not have the right to go on strike.
Court documents do not list an attorney for the Fargo School Board.
