AKRON, Ohio - After more than four months of negotiations, the Akron Board of Education and its teacher's union have reached impasse.
The Akron Education Association (AEA) and the board will submit all unresolved items to a fact-finder. That person will then hold a hearing on the unresolved issues and submit a set of recommendations to both sides.
If the union and board reject the fact-finder's report, both sides are then required by the agreement to try mediation to come to strike a deal.
Timing couldn't be worse. The impasse comes as the district readies to place a 7.9 mill operating levy on the November ballot. Last year, voters rejected similar levy request.
