Paul School District prepares for possible teacher strike as negotiations continue

"We made progress that will improve our public schools". The union authorized a strike at the beginning of February, and set the Tuesday strike date last week.

The teachers union represents 3,800 employees and includes three bargaining groups: teachers, educational assistants and a group of other employees known as "school and community service professionals" that includes cultural specialists and family liaisons. "We defended our class size language and strengthened the commitment to Restorative Practices".

The union proposed pay increases of 2.5 percent this year and next, while the district offered 1 percent. "This is a strong step in that direction". The district has about 3,200 teachers and almost 37,000 students.

In an effort to avert the teachers' strike, negotiations continued over the weekend and are scheduled through Monday. School will go on as normal this week, the district said. More than 100 teachers, staff and their supporters showed up to the rally.

The district seeks to hold new spending for teachers to just over $2 million annually.

Those issues have been at the heart of negotiations, along with raises.

Teachers were planning to start picketing outside district schools Tuesday morning.
