HAMILTON, Ohio (AP) - Social services workers and county officials will resume contract negotiations for the first time in more than a month following a ruling from the state employment board.

The Hamilton-Middletown Journal-News reports (https://bit.ly/1xQgaMb ) county officials and workers at the Butler County Children Services agency will continue contract talks after Ohio’s employment relations board ruled last week that the county did not negotiate in bad faith with the workers.

The children’s services union had filed an unfair labor practices action with the employment board in August, alleging the county was intimidating workers who planned to strike.

The workers went on strike in August for three weeks before returning to work without a contract agreement Sept. 9. The two sides haven’t negotiated since.

The newspaper reports both sides will meet to resume discussions.
