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.
