WILKES-BARRE, Pa. - A judge in northeastern Pennsylvania has ordered a school board and the district’s support staff union to resume contract talks , and not to give up until they work out a deal.

Luzerne County Judge Peter Paul Olszewski Jr. ordered talks in the Crestwood School District labor dispute to begin Friday night and continue through the weekend. The union agreed to end its strike, which began Monday. It involved 118 workers such as custodians, secretaries and cafeteria workers.

Members of the Crestwood Education Support Professionals Association had been working under the terms of a contract that expired in 2001, though agreements including pay raises were reached through June 30, 2004.
