Rick Beck will lead teachers' union

        The Cincinnati Federation of Teachers Monday elected long-time bargaining chairman Rick Beck as its president.

        Mr. Beck, a math teacher at Woodward High, defeated Juvenile Detention Center teacher Murray Grace in a mail-in election necessitated by the departure of former union president Tom Mooney.

        Union officials would not provide the final vote count, and the results are unofficial until ratified by union membership, which is expected at a meeting Wednesday.

        Mr. Beck, 50, is expected to be sworn in immediately after the ratification. He has served as the 3,600-member union's bargaining chair since 1990.

        Mr. Mooney was union president for 21 years before taking over as president of the Ohio Federation of Teachers last month.
