Teachers union Lakota Education Association has reached an agreement with Lakota Local School District after a little more than seven weeks of negotiations. –
District officials said Thursday a tentative agreement between the district and the 923-member teachers union was reached Wednesday.
Negotiations started on those issues March 23 on re-opened sections of the current three-year contract, which runs from July 1, 2014 through June 30, 2017.
That contract included a provision to reopen negotiations for the second and third years on the issues of salary, insurance, evaluations, and expiring memorandums of understanding.
That agreement must be ratified by the teacher’s union and Lakota, which is the second largest school district in southwest Ohio and the eighth largest in the state,
The votes will be held, first by the union and then by the school board, “in the near future,” according to Lakota spokesman Randy Oppenheimer.
“It takes a while to get it scheduled,” he said. “There is no date set yet.”
LEA President Sharon May said the union is “still working on a timeline” to get the agreement ratified.
