Boston Teachers Union offers major concessions toward contract deal

The Boston Teachers Union proposed a deal this afternoon to break deadlocked negotiations over a new contract that includes major concessions on wages and on creating a new teacher evaluation system that would speed up the dismissal of ineffective teachers.

“We need to break the stalemate,” Richard Stutman, the union president, said in an interview, noting that on Sept. 1 teachers will begin a third school year without a contract. “This is an opportune time to start the school year with a clean slate, a fresh start.”
