Teachers at 4 NJ schools won't strike

Teachers at four southern New Jersey Catholic high schools will be in their classrooms Friday even though contract talks have broken down. A seven-week contract extension expired at midnight and members had been considering a strike. Catholic Teachers Union President Bill Blumenstein says the union executive committee will discuss the next step in a few days.

Raises and health benefits remain sticking points. The Camden Diocese has said Camden Catholic in Cherry Hill, Paul VI in Haddonfield, Sacred Heart High School in Vineland and Holy Spirit in Absecon would remain open if teachers walked.
