Amediation session on a salary dispute between Burbank teachers and school officials, expected to be held today, has been postponed because of a "giant misunderstanding," a school district official said.
Another meeting was not immediately scheduled, but a teachers' representative told the district that the educators want to meet over the weekend.
"We have not received any response to that," said Maureen Doyle, president of the Burbank Teachers Assn.
Elizabeth Burroughs, assistant superintendent for district personnel services, said plans for a meeting today had never been made final, although Doyle had said a meeting was set.
"There was just a giant misunderstanding," Burroughs said.
At the meeting, Doyle had been planning to present totals of the vote in which the district's 550 teachers rejected the district's latest salary offer. The vote also authorized the association's board of directors to call a strike.
