ASHLAND -- The membership of the Ashland City Teachers’ Association passed a vote of no-confidence against the Ashland City Board of Education on Monday night, according to ACTA spokesperson Rich Wasowski.
“Our members are very concerned about the Board’s lack of financial transparency and unwillingness to bargain in good faith,” Wasowski said.
In a second vote, ACTA membership overwhelmingly authorized its negotiating team to issue a strike notice, when they deem it necessary. Should the team issue a strike notice, the membership will need to vote prior to any job action.
The Ashland City Teachers’ Association will be holding an Ashland City School District Financial Forum on Tuesday, Dec. 3, in Jack’s Place at Trinity Lutheran Church, 508 Center Street at 6:30 p.m.to explore financial issues in the district. This event is open to the public and community members are encouraged to attend this important meeting.
