Austintown teachers protest lack of contract

Updated:

AUSTINTOWN, Ohio - Austintown school officials are reacting to teachers who may be protesting a lack of a contract.

Superintendent Vince Colaluca said he has heard that the teacher's union is calling on members to only perform work within their normal work day. This means teachers would not take paper work home, or take part in extracurricular activities that are not spelled out in their contract.

The teachers union has been trying to get a new labor agreement since the start of the school year.

"There may be some pieces that teachers do that are beyond their work day," said Colaluca. "They do a lot. They are very good people. Unfortunately those teachers, at that time, would have to make a decision if they are going to provide the professionalism that teachers have in the Austintown Schools, and provide that education to students, or not, and that will be a choice they have to make individually."

Colaluca could not give specifics regarding negotiations with teachers, but did say the school has not received any new operating money since 1996.

The president of the teacher's union was not able to be reached for comment.
