Cleveland Heights Teachers Union, CH-UH Board of Education reach tentative agreement, avoiding strike


The Cleveland Heights Teachers Union and the Cleveland Heights-University Heights Board of Education have reached a tentative agreement Wednesday, avoiding a strike. 

The pending strike was a response to the district’s unilateral imposition of a new contract that slashes retirement and health benefits, costing many members $3,000-5,000 a year in losses, according to the Cleveland Heights Teachers Union (CHTU).

According to a press release issued this afternoon, the parties involved negotiated overnight and into the morning, before “agreeing on important compromises for the good of our students and community.”
