Union leaders said over the weekend it was surprisingly sober on the other side of the table, especially after the city told the union on Friday it has already issued a final contract offer, which includes a 16 percent total raise over a five-year contract.

The teachers union said it proposed a structure on two key concerns — class size and staffing — and came up with a pathway offer to phase them in.
