Thursday night's negotiations between the Youngstown School Board and the Youngstown Education Association ended without a deal.

Members of the YEA gathered at East High School Thursday night for a candlelight vigil and vowed to remain there until an agreement was made.

The union members were packing up their things around 11:30 p.m. Thursday after negotiations ended without an agreement.

"The board walked away at 11:30 p.m.," YEA Spokesman Jim Courim said. "There is no agreement. It is clear the board is not interested in getting the students back in school."

Friday will be the 13th day of the strike.

Courim told 21 News that negotiations will begin again at 11 a.m. Friday.
