School district talks strikers into picket cutbacks

The teacher strike went into day three in the Harrison Hills (OH) school district, but the two sides have reached a deal on limiting pickets at school sites. The negotiated agreement has the authority of a court order and will continue indefinitely.

Terms vary depending on school site.

At Harrison High School, as many as 50 pickets could be present at one time. Ten pickets would be allowed at five separate entrances. In the case of Lakeland Elementary, with only two entrances, four striking teachers would be allowed at each entrance.

Common Pleas Judge Michael Nunner helped broker the deal and gave his approval on Wednesday.
