Bexley Teachers Negotiate New Contract in One Day
With the specter of severely limited bargaining power hanging over them, Bexley teachers recently reached agreement on a new contract in just one day. The Ohio House could vote on Senate Bill 5, a measure that nearly guts collective bargaining rights of public employees, as early as tomorrow. Mindy Hall heads the Bexley Education Association which represents the District's 173 teachers. She said teachers and the administration worked together hammer out a new contract before SB 5 becomes law. Mindy Hall is a third grade teacher at Maryland Avenue Elementary School. The new contract expires in July 2015.
