Fact-finding report released in Ridgway teachers contract dispute

RIDGWAY - After two years of talks, 12 bargaining sessions, fact-finding hearings and numerous closed-door discussions, Ridgway's school teachers and district are no closer to reaching a deal on teacher contracts. In that time, the district's 78 teachers have been working to secure a new collective bargaining agreement with the district while renegotiating on line items like salaries and medical benefits.
