Teachers strike may land in court
By BARBARA MISLE
Ann Arbor school board officials have
threatened to take striking teachers to
court if 'a settlement isn't reached this
week and teachers say a judge's inter-
vention could speed up negotiations.
Although board officials are only con-
sidering moving negotiations into U.S.
District Court, teachers say such a
move could push the 14-day-old strike
closer to an end.
"MAYBE AN objective third party
could help," said Gerry VanWambeke,
chief negotiator for the Ann Arbor
Education Association, the teachers'
"We would hope the parties can settle
the dispute by themselves, but our
feeling is not one of being particularly
concerned about (the threat of going to
court)," VanWambeke said.
If the board moved talks into court, it
is likely that teachers would be ordered

tinued on the two disputed issues of
health insurance and salary increases,
said Errol Goldman, head negotiator
for the board.
"WE JUST WANT teachers back in
classrooms," Goldman said. "There
are kids out there suffering."
The start of school for 14,000 students.
has been delayed for 13 days.
Teachers have refused the board's
request that they give up their current
insurance policy through the Michigan
Education Special Services Ad-
ministration (MESSA) for a com-
parable, but less expensive, plan.
UNDER THE latest board proposal,
which teachers also rejected, teachers
would have the MESSA option to phase
out MESSA over three years. or pay ex-
tra for that coverage.
On Saturday the board moved under
the Public Employees Relations Act to
implement the final three-year
" proposal on insurance unless a different
settlement is reached. Under the acts if
board officials have made a "good faith
effort" toward bargaining, they can or-
der into effect their best offer, said
Robert Mosely, assistant school
Teachers say the move is in-
significant because they refuse to
return to school.
Negotiators said teachers would
return to work if they could keep MESSA
for this year and continue negotiations
on the following years through a
mediator appointed by the Michigan
Employment Relations Commission.
The board, however, rejected that
Teachers are also asking for a 4 per-
cent wage increase while the board is
only offering a 2.5 percent hike.

HART ALSO attacked Reagan's con-

is a threat to Mexican security. Mexico
had participated in the rebel forces'
negotiation efforts, he said, and the
Mexican government "is intelligent
enough to know when its own national
security is at stake" without the United

But he said he is not discouraged by
the statistics, saying that former

After a question-and-answer session
