Neshaminy teachers say they'll return to work
NESHAMINY, Pa. - January 17, 2012 (WPVI) -- Striking teachers in a suburban Philadelphia school district say they'll return to work at the end of the week.
Union president Louise Boyd says the Neshaminy School District teachers would go back to work on Friday.
Teachers began striking Jan. 9 in hopes of forcing a contract deal after working without raises since 2008. District officials say they can't afford even half of the teachers' demands without raising taxes, spending reserves and cutting student programs.
Negotiations have been suspended since the start of the strike.
