Barberton teachers boycott open house

Barberton — The Board of Education has filed an unfair labor practice against the teachers’ union for boycotting an annual elementary and middle school open house.

Superintendent Elizabeth Lolli said attendance at the open house is not written in the contract, but has been the practice for about 40 years.

In a statement released Wednesday, Lolli called the boycott a “illegal partial strike,” and said the district proposes to dock teacher salaries for the time not spent at the open house.

But union spokesman Jeffery Janiga said the open house has always been on a volunteer basis.
