ELECTION: Beavercreek schools cite rising costs as levy reason
Union President David Romick said Monday that the issue for the association wasn’t the idea of the audit itself but how the coverage changes were implemented. Then there was the issue of damages.
“The first ruling, our point was that the dependents’ eligibility needed to be restored,” Romick said. “As time went on and appeals were being filed, we’ve got dependents out there without insurance, so costs were becoming a factor.”
Neither Dayton Public Schools officials, nor attorney Brian Wildermuth, who represented DPS, immediately responded to requests for comment.
DPS challenged the February 2017 arbitration ruling in Montgomery County Common Pleas Court, and Judge Richard Skelton ruled in favor of the union in October 2017. Then the district challenged that ruling in Ohio’s Second District Court of Appeals, which issued a 2-1 ruling in favor of the union on Oct. 26.
