Negotiations continue in Catholic school strike

    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.
