A union representing more than 270 Montgomery County child-welfare caseworkers has announced its intent to strike.

The Professionals Guild of Ohio filed an official 10-day notice with the state.

If a deal over wage increases isn’t reached, the union could walk out as early as July 19.

In a statement, Montgomery County officials say they’re working on plans to keep child and family services operations going in the event of a strike.

Messages left with The Professionals Guild of Ohio were not immediately returned.

This story will be updated as more information becomes available.
