WESTLAKE, OH (WOIO) -

A federal mediator is calling Westlake teachers and the school board back to the bargaining table on Tuesday, May 24.

The teachers union accepted the invite, still no word on the board's decision.

Saturday afternoon Westlake teachers staged an informational picket, in an effort to get the board back to the bargaining table to continue negotiations.

The teachers are threatening to strike without a new contract. Friday they rejected the school board's 'last, best offer'.
