Talks continued Friday in an attempt to end the strike of Catholic secondary school teachers.
The Times Herald reports negotiations continued as both sides discussed work rules, job security and other issues.
According to The Times Herald, teachers have said they will return to work if the archdiocese agrees to mediation, which officials have refused to do.
The strike was approved in a vote of 711 Catholic secondary school teachers. More than 16,000 students at 17 high schools are impacted.
