A potential strike is averted as the Buckeye Local School District and the Ohio Association of Public School Employees passed a tentative agreement Wednesday.
News 9 reports on Tuesday both sides met, along with a federal mediator. From there a tentative agreement went to members of the union for a vote. This agreement gives OAPSE members a 35-cent-per-hour raise for the next two years, and requires them to accept all deductibles in insurance.
The ratification means school will begin next week, as scheduled. And that a strike notice is withdrawn.
