The negotiator for the South Butler County School District’s 168 teachers said a strike date has been set after three and one-half years of useless negotiations with the school board.
The teachers last contract expired in June 2014 and two fact-finding reports by a state mediator have not settled the two sides’ differences, which are wages, salary, tuition reimbursement.
There is no exact date for the strike, but the teachers are expected to walk out as soon as next week.
This is saddening. My step kids go to South Butler, Step kids will loose their summer over this. On the flip side, one can understand the teachers frustration after three years of getting no where.
When the teachers do walk out Butler News will be there to cover the strike.
