Teacher contract talks with city at impasse

After 21 months of negotiations over a new teachers contract, the Boston Teachers Union and the School Department declared Tuesday night that they had reached an impasse and will ask the state to appoint a mediator in hopes of resolving a stalemate over pay and other issues.

The two sides said they will file the request together Wednesday morning with the state Division of Labor Relations. The mediator would meet with both sides jointly and independently to help them reach an agreement.
