STRONGSVILLE, OH (WOIO) -

The picket signs remain up in Strongsville as teachers enter Day #4 of their strike.

Close to 400 teachers are on strike, leaving eleven schools filled with substitutes.

Wednesday night, members of the Strongsville City Schools Board of Education and Strongsville Education Association negotiation teams met with the federal mediator.

Based upon these discussions, there is no basis for the mediator to convene the negotiation teams at this time. The parties remain divided on key issues, and at this point, there are no new talks set.

The situation has been tense, with picketing teachers screaming at substitute teachers, as well as blocking the entrances to schools. Police have been forced to intervene. And on Wednesday, one picketer was arrested for disorderly conduct.

The district is asking teachers to pay more of the healthcare costs. Teachers want to unfreeze a merit pay system the district had.
