Holton teachers returned their contracts unsigned to protest a lack of negotiations and another year without a pay raise.

The teachers took 69 unsigned contracts to the Holton school district's offices on Monday.

Joni White, president of the Holton National Education Association, says teachers are unhappy that the board of education issued a unilateral contract last week. She says teachers also haven't received a raise in four years.

Teachers had asked for a 1 percent raise for next school year, which would have cost the district about $51,000.

Superintendent Nancy Meyer said 132 certified teachers were involved in the earlier negotiations.

Under the unilateral contract, teachers could accept the contract,
continue under the 2010-2011 contract or resign without penalty by
July 3.
