More talks in Barnesville
(2007-08-31)
(WOUB) - The president of the Barnesville Education Association says he's trying to be hopeful about upcoming contract talks.

But Chris Pack says differences may be hard to overcome Tuesday in a last ditch effort to prevent a strike.

The BEA has issued a strike notice for Wednesday.

Pack says insurance premiums are the main sticking point and teachers are disappointed with the way they're being treated by school officials.

The president of the Barnesville Exempted Village School District says a teachers union proposal for binding arbitration was rejected because the board does not want to give up control of the district's financial situation.
