Negotiations between striking teachers and the Souderton school district broke down Friday afternoon. The teacher's union and the school board are far apart. The union wants an average salary increase of about 8.2 percent to put it on par with other school districts in Montgomery County.

The board is offering 2.5 percent.

The mediator is calling both sides back to the table Monday at 2:30pm.
