Summer is here and teachers are asking for some changes going into the new school year! The Columbus Education Association has advised leadership to provide a 10-day notice of strike if negotiations aren’t broken down this summer.
According to 10tv.com, the union hosted a meeting with the attendance of half its membership but the vote was unanimous.
The district said the CEA represents more than 4,000 employees including teachers, counselors, and nurses.
The CEA said there are several dates scheduled for talks.
On Tuesday, the Columbus Board of Education said they want superintendent Talisa Dixon to look for a strike contingency plan.
