County And Children's Services Workers Reach Tentative Agreement
Montgomery County Children's Services workers went back to their jobs on Tuesday, after a strike that lasted several weeks. Both the Professionals Guild of Ohio (PGO) and the county confirm that a tentative agreement over wage issues was reached on Monday.
The agreement came together through negotiations working with the State Employment Relations Board (SERB).
Both the county and the PGO say, while they can’t provide details of the tentative agreement, the union is expected to vote on it later this week. If approved by PGO union members, county commissioners will take up the vote next Tuesday.
The county rejected an offer from the union in late September after PGO members entered a strike for the second time this year. An earlier attempt to strike this summer was halted by a judge for 60 days.
The union and the couty have been add odds over wage increases and possible wage ranges for Children's Services workers.
