CLARKS SUMMIT -- Teachers hit the picket line for health care in Lackawanna County.
Teachers in the Abington Heights School District announced Thursday they will strike starting September 11th.
Educators in the Clarks Summit area have been working without a contract for three years.
"The only time we did settle without a strike was in 2008. So, is it exhausting? Absolutely. Is it something we're used to? Unfortunately," said Jim Maria, Abington Heights Education Association.
The teachers said the main issue for picketing is health care benefits in Lackawanna County.
