Juneau teachers cut back with talks at stalemate

- JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) - Some Juneau teachers are cutting back on hours with no new contract deal in sight with the local school district. Parents received emails last week, telling them some teachers would no longer be available for students or parents after hours and that grading and other work also would not be done after hours. The Juneau Empire reports that this comes with contract negotiations between the Juneau Education Association and Juneau School District at a stalemate. The Juneau School Board plans to hold a special meeting in executive session Wednesday on collective bargaining, while the teachers' union is having a "strike preparation" meeting Thursday. Union vice president Dirk Miller says the meeting will be about asking what the union can do to inform the community about what has been happening.
