Ohio Education Association

The nearly 1,100 members of the Dayton Education Association teachers union are expected to vote Thursday afternoon on a tentative contract deal. If the union approves the contract, it would put an end to months of tense negotiations with the Dayton Public Schools administration and avert a planned strike.

Negotiations ended overnight Thursday after more than 18 hours of talks, resulting in a collective bargaining agreement. Details have not yet been released.

The vote is scheduled for Thursday at the Dayton Marriott Hotel at 4:30 p.m.

Four members of the state board of education walked out of the group’s meeting Monday. They wanted to ask questions about a data-rigging scandal at the Department of Education and a takeover of Youngstown schools by the state.


But board member Ann Jacobs says she and the others were told they would not be permitted to talk to the public over what was said in executive session.
