No agreement was reached in a bargaining meeting Monday night between the Altamont Education Association and the Altamont Board of Education.

Altamont teachers have set a strike deadline of this Thursday.

AEA President Mike Delaney stated the AEA "provided a very acceptable proposal" that was "rejected by the Board."  Delaney said, "Our proposal tried to re-establish fairness" and said the Board provided no counter-offer at the meeting.

Another negotiating meeting has been called for Wednesday at 5:30pm.  Altamont teachers encourage the public to attend to show support for a settlement.
