Teachers Continue Picket

OLD FORGE — Teachers in one part of Lackawanna County were back on the picket line Friday.

The strike began in Old Forge Thursday morning.

Teachers say they are fighting for better wages and benefits.

The Old Forge school board approved what it calls its final best offer to teachers Wednesday.

There are currently no plans for the two sides to meet to settle the dispute.
