Teachers Union Files Suit

A teach­ers union has filed a law­suit on behalf of The Hicksville Edu­ca­tion Asso­ci­a­tion in Defi­ance County Court against the Hicksville Exempted Vil­lage Board of Edu­ca­tion.

The suit, accord­ing to the Cres­cent News, comes fol­low­ing a griev­ance the union filed last August, and con­cerns the board’s alleged unfair actions taken against Amber Apt.

The suit seeks a declara­tory judg­ment vacat­ing an April 16 arbi­tra­tion award, and also asks that the court “award the asso­ci­a­tion a make whole rem­edy and Amber Apt a make whole rem­edy includ­ing, but not lim­ited to, a lim­ited con­tract for the 2013–14 school year.“

The Hicksville Edu­ca­tion Asso­ci­a­tion says they have referred the mat­ter to their attor­ney, and a response will be filed on their behalf. They say they intend to vig­or­ously defend against the lawsuit.
