Meeting scheduled in Strongsville teachers strike as negotiations resume Tuesday

STRONGSVILLE, OHIO - Talks will resume Tuesday morning in the Strongsville teachers strike. The teachers have been off the job and on the picket lines since March 4.

The union and school board are scheduled to meet with a federal mediator at 10:30 a.m.

No new talks were scheduled but that changed after union president Tracy Linscott hand-delivered a counterproposal to Superintendent John Krupinsk Friday afternoon.

The union said they will pay more for health insurance, but school officials said the district will still not be saving enough money.

The strike has been bitter at times and filled with tension.

Could Tuesday's talks lead to significant progress, a tentative agreement or end like the other meetings with talks breaking off and no new negotiations planned?
