SOUTH ABINGTON TOWNSHIP -- A teachers strike is on hold in Lackawanna County.

Abington Heights teachers agreed to cancel the strike set for January 2.

In September, teachers in the Clarks Summit area walked picket lines for eight days.

They're fighting over pay raises and teacher contributions to healthcare.

Union leaders say teachers will walk out on March 1 if the two sides can't reach a deal by then.
