Youngstown school teachers present show of solidarity at board meeting

Posted: Updated:

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - About one hundred teachers, many wearing bright yellow shirts attended Tuesday's Youngstown Board of Education meeting.

Although none of them spoke during the meeting, union leaders say they have a message for the board about current contract negotiations.

"We want to send a message to our board of education that we are hoping they can work with our negotiating team and settle a fair contract with us." said YEA spokesperson Paula Valentini.

No talks are scheduled between the two sides right now.

The union agreed to extend their contract, through the end of September.

Classes are scheduled to begin next week.
