CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) –
Teachers in the Cleveland Metropolitan School District have reached a tentative agreement with the district, preventing a planned strike which was set to begin on Thursday.
“We worked hard to avoid any disruption to our students’ education,” said Cleveland Teacher’s Union president David Quolke in a statement. “We were able to bring back a contract that is good for kids and fair for educators- that our members will be proud to ratify. We listened to the concerns of our members and Cleveland parents through conversations and surveys and made sure those issues were at the forefront of our talks.”
The deal comes after 21 straight hours of bargaining on Monday, with an agreement not reached until 5:00 a.m. on Tuesday.
“We are pleased to take a contract to the board that both sides sees as fair,” said CMSD CEO Eric Gordon in a statement. “And now, we must work beyond the bargaining table to breathe life into a contract that has, at its heart, what’s best for kids.”
