Saucon Valley teachers have been working without a contract since June 30, 2012, and a neutral fact-finder was recently appointed by the Pennsylvania Labor Relations Board to make recommendations and issue a report.
If both sides accept the state's recommendations they will become binding, but if they are rejected, the report and recommendations will become public, the Express-Times article indicated.
According to an article previously published by the Morning Call, two of the issues that have become sticking points in the contract talks are a teacher retirement incentive program and the decision-making process for teachers who want to obtain a district-paid graduate degree.
Saucon Valley School Board meetings are normally held on the second and fourth Tuesday of each month at 7 p.m. in the high school Audion room.
Meetings are also live-streamed online, with the video recordings uploaded to YouTube.
Watch the recording of the Oct. 22 school board meeting here.
