School-less in Seattle: Teachers Set To Strike

School-less in Seattle: Teachers Set To Strike

Seattle teachers were slated to go on strike for the first time 30 years on Wednesday (September 9) morning. 

On Tuesday night, bargaining between the city and the union broke down. Classes were supposed to start today, reports the New York Times.

Teachers in Seattle have seen no cost-of-living pay adjustments over the past six years even as rents have risen; they have not had an increase in educator health care benefits in five years.
