Strongsville teachers on strike.

STRONGSVILLE, Ohio– With the Strongsville teachers strike now in its sixth week, Strongsville City Council President Michael Daymut announced that a special council meeting will be held Tuesday at 5 p.m. on behalf of the students.

Council has drafted a resolution, urging both sides to end the strike.

This comes after students showed up at an April 1 council meeting, concerned about their education.

Meanwhile, the Board of Education and the Strongsville Education Association have been meeting with a federal mediator since 9 a.m.

The two sides met several times last week, for as long as 12 hours per meeting.

Nearly 400 union members have been off the job since March 4.

Students have been attending classes with substitutes.
