Week 7 and still no deal in Strongsville

STRONGSVILLE, OH (WOIO) -

Week 7 and still no deal in the lagging teachers strike in Strongsville.

This, despite a marathon negotiation session on Sunday. The two sides aren't releasing any information about what's going on inside the talks.

And despite long negotiation sessions, there seems to be no real progress coming from the talks.

The Strongsville Education Association (SEA) released the following early Monday morning:

Yesterday (Sunday) the Board finally admitted what the SEA has known for the last 6 months. They have $3.2 million more than they have claimed. When added to the $1.6 million saved since the strike began, the total is $4.8 million.

Last night the Board could have ended the strike and returned the teachers to their classrooms immediately. Unfortunately, $4.8 million isn't enough to convince the Board to put students ahead of their personal agendas.
