Arbitrator Agrees wtih Old Forge School District

An 18-page arbitrator's report just released indicates the union's demands -"Particularly its salary increases" and "Refusal to accept cost sharing for health insurance" could "close the district and send its pupils to other districts outside the borough".
Old Forge, Lackawanna County- An impartial arbitrator is siding with the Old Forge School district in a labor dispute with its teachers.
 
The Old Forge Teachers union went on strike last September  canceling classes for three weeks.
     An 18-page arbitrator's report just released indicates the union's demands -"Particularly its salary increases" and "Refusal to accept cost sharing for health insurance" could "close the district and send its pupils to other districts outside the borough".
     The school year in Old Forge is set to begin next Thursday.
     The arbitration will become final and binding unless either side officially rejects it within ten days.
