CAMPBELL - The Campbell Education Association this morning authorized a 10-day intent to strike notice.
The unanimous decision comes one day after the Board of Education agreed to return to the negotiation table to hash out a three-year contract with the union. The strike notice was file with the State Employee Relations Board.
The board issued what it called its last, best offer to the union on June 28 after two sessions with a federal mediator did not result in an agreement. The teachers, whose contract expired June 30, have been in negotiations with the district since March.
Superintendent Tom Robey has said the board did not receive a response to its June 28 offer. He said that he spoke with the mediator three times on Tuesday to reignite the negotiations and that the board is ready and willing to meet whenever the mediator sets a date.
Robey said the main sticking points in the contract are primarily financial.
Colleen Joss, CEA Crisis Committee spokeswoman, would not disclose what the problem is with the contract.
