ELIZABETH TOWNSHIP — Rock Hill Local School

District bus drivers, cooks, janitors and other classified staff will be working a little longer without a new contract.

The Ohio Association of Public School Employees Local 252, which represents those workers, rejected a contract put forth by the school district earlier this week. There were 63 votes cast against the district’s proposal and four votes cast in favor of it.

Linda Bolin, staff representative for OAPSE, said she thinks the two sides can still come to an agreement.

“The union is trying to go back to the table and negotiate,” Bolin said. “We’re trying hard to get the board to agree to this. We want the board to come back to the table.”

She did not discuss what issues the two sides are in disagreement over.

The old contract expired in June. Employees have been working under the old contract since then.

Rock Hill Superintendent Lloyd Evans was unavailable for comment.
