As Strike Looms, Seattle Teachers Plan Tuesday Vote
With teacher strikes a possibility in Seattle and another district, Washington's teachers union says negotiations are continuing and agreements could be reached before classes begin next week.
The teachers in the South Kitsap School District have set an earlier deadline, however, than Seattle teachers. Washington Education Association spokesman Rich Wood says the teachers in Port Orchard have decided they will go on strike if they do not have a contract by Saturday.
Seattle teachers have made plans to take another vote — possibly on a new contract — on Tuesday, the day before the school year is scheduled to begin.
Wood says close to 200 Washington school districts had contracts up for discussion this year and these are the only two districts that haven't reached agreements.
