The Washoe Education's Association has asked an arbitrator to step in and settle a dispute with the school district over teacher wages.
The union first proposed a one-year five percent increase for this school year. It was rejected by the school district.
Union representatives counter-offered with a two year agreement. Teachers would get a four percent pay hike this year and a two percent hike next year. That proposal was also turned down.
This session, the legislature approved a two percent pay increase for teachers this year, and a four percent raise next year.
Both sides plan on meeting again Nov. 3.
