No Deal For Fairborn Teachers' Union, School Board
FAIRBORN -- The Fairborn Teachers' Union and School Board go head-to-head in another round of contract negotiations. Both sides have been in a stalemate for months. After trying to negotiate a new contract for five long hours Monday night, there is still no agreement.
Healthcare, smaller class sizes, and bringing back lunch duty aids are a few sticking points with the union. The board and union leaders are expected to go back to the negotiation table after Thanksgiving break.
FAIRBORN--Fairborn's school board held a special meeting today to approve a projected budget for the next five years.
The district has been costs because of several failed levies.
In April, the board made a $1.6 million dollar cut in staffing this school year. Board members say they're looking at a deficit.
"There seems to be some generalization out there that maybe we're hiding money or that we have a pot of money. There's no pot of money, we're not hiding money. This is the fact, these are the facts, this is what we have and there's simply no money," said board president Tess Little.
"It's not about politics. I'm tired of that; politics getting in the way of education period. It's about the kids," added board member Roland Parks.
Meanwhile teachers have been negotiating contracts with the board since June.
There was no mention of the negotiations in today's meeting.
The board says will get more accurate budget numbers once they receive state funding.
FAIRBORN-- More talks on the ongoing battle between Fairborn teachers and the school board.
The Fairborn School Board will hold a special meeting Friday morning expected to continue negotiating a contract. This meeting was announced after the threat of teacher's strike, for now that possible strike is on hold.
During a meeting Thursday, the school board delivered a new contract proposal to the teacher's union.
Fairborn teachers and staff have been working without a contract since late June.
Some of the issues that the union is pushing for is smaller class sizes, health care and benefits.
We spoke to a representative with the Fairborn union and he says the teachers have reached their boiling point.
While a 10-day strike notice is on hold, the union is now suing the board for unfair labor practices for making them work without a contract.
The state said that there is probable cause and a hearing is expected in the next 30 to 40 days.
Right now it is still not clear what is in the new contract proposal.
