SPRINGBORO, Ohio (WDTN) - The Springboro Community Schools are in the middle of a contract dispute.
The Springboro Education Association announced in a written statement Wednesday evening to "grant authority to their negotiations team to file a ten day strike notice if current negotiations do not result in a contract settlement."
"We are currently at the negotiations table with our school board and will continue to bargain in good faith," said Josh
Cawein, Springboro Education Association spokesperson.
The statement says sticking points include salary, insurance and working conditions that impact both teachers and students.
Negotiations are set for June, July and August to continue discussions.
"Our hope is that we reach an agreement with the Board and there is not a need to issue a strike notice, but the SEA membership feels that it is necessary to take precautionary measures in the event an agreement cannot be reached," said Cawein.
The Springboro Education Association represents nearly 330 educators employed at the Springboro Community School District.
