BUTLER COUNTY, OH (FOX19) -

Workers in the Butler County Children Services union are heading back to work Tuesday.

The workers had been on strike for three weeks because they weren't able to reach an agreement with the county. The union claimed that workers hadn't received pay raises in three years but the work load increased in that time.

The county on the other hand wanted to move from what they called "unsustainable" step increases to a performance-based pay system. They said this system had already been accepted by 10 out of 11 county unions.

Temporary workers were hired to work in the children services department while union workers were on strike.

The county is holding a press conference at 1 p.m. to discuss the recent developments.

FOX19 NOW will update this story as more information becomes available.
