FAIRFIELD, OH (FOX19) -

A town hall meeting will be held Sunday afternoon regarding the workers' strike of the Butler County Department of Children Services.

After seven days on strike, the Butler County Children Services Independent Union and Butler County officials have not reached an agreement based on money and work load.

Temporary workers have been training for the positions in Butler County that current social service workers left to strike.

The county wants to move from what they call "unsustainable" step increases to a performance-based pay system, which has already been accepted by 10 out of 11 county unions.

However, union workers in Butler County are upset they haven't received a raise in three years and say the workload is increasing. Dozens of workers were still on strike Sunday.

As a result, the Butler County Jobs & Family Services had a job fair last week to prepare for the strike.

The town hall meeting is scheduled for 2 p.m. at Receptions on Boymel Drive in Fairfield.
