Youngstown Schools, teachers’ union reach tentative deal

YOUNGSTOWN – Youngstown City School District CEO Justin Jennings and the union representing the district’s 400 teachers have reached a tentative contract – the first in seven years, the school district has announced.

“We have dedicated, highly-skilled educators in Youngstown and I want them to stay here,” Jennings said in a prepared statement. “I think we’ve reached a fair and equitable agreement that I hope will do that.”

The Youngstown Education Association must approve the tentative pact.

“The YEA is glad to have a tentative agreement to present to our members,” said Larry Ellis, YEA president. “Our goal is to always work with the administration to produce a fair agreement for both sides while creating a high-quality learning environment for our scholars.”

Details of the tentative agreement have not yet been released.
