After a four-hour meeting with the Quincy School Board Sunday night, members from the teacher's union have yet to reach a contract agreement.
For weeks, the two groups have passed back and forth new proposals regarding salaries, benefits and insurance.
KHQA spoke with Tom Dickerson, the vice president of the school board, who says, at the moment, the union is looking over a very comprehensive proposal. Dickerson says it's a difficult negotiation and that the board is doing all it can to try and reduce costs to the district.
The next meeting is set for August 25.
