teacher strike

A teacher strike in the Columbus City Schools seems to have been averted, just two weeks before school is scheduled to start.  

While both sides insist they are bargaining in good faith, the Columbus City Schools and the teachers union continue to plan for a possible strike this fall. 

The Columbus City Schools board is voting tonight on hiring a "strike contingency planner" to help the district if contract talks with the teachers union fall through this summer.  

Summer vacation starts next week, but looking ahead to fall, the union that represents Columbus City Schools teachers, voted to authorize a 10-day strike vote in case negotiations over a new contract break down this summer. 

Hundreds of teachers at Wright State University are on strike.
