STRONGSVILLE, Ohio (AP) — Teachers in a Cleveland-area school district are going on strike.
More than 380 members of the teacher's union in Strongsville voted to strike Monday.
Union members — including teachers, guidance counselors and psychologists — voted Sunday to reject the Strongsville School Board's last best offer.
The (Cleveland) Plain Dealer (http://bit.ly/XkL7Iq ) reports the strike culminates more than seven months of regular negotiations and more than a month of protests from the teachers at board of education meetings. On Sunday teachers demonstrated at the Strongsville Police Department.
School Board President David Frazee called the teachers' decision "unfortunate," but said the district will move forward to "keep the schools open and keep everyone safe."
Substitute teachers will fill in. The district southwest of Cleveland has about 6,200 students.
