The Nashua Teachers’ Union says teachers might cut back on their responsibilities if the Board of Education doesn’t come to a contract agreement this week.

Teachers started the new school year without a contract. Union president Adam Marcoux says the board has been mostly quiet since mid-June.

Marcoux says teachers may cut back on student field trips, writing recommendation letters or advising organizations without being paid.

Those steps would come Sept. 18. That is, if there is no tentative agreement reached at the next negotiation session.

The teachers' contract expired Sept. 1. The contract for para-professionals/educators expired June 30.

The union plans to meet with the board on Wednesday.

Marcoux is asking union members to show up Monday night when the school board meets at Nashua High School North.
