Seattle Public Schools and the Seattle Education Association have been meeting throughout the summer to negotiate a new tentative contract for Seattle teachers. As of Tuesday night, no tentative contract had been reached.
On Thursday, September 3 Seattle Public Schools teachers will vote on whether to accept a tentative contract agreement. No tentative agreement has been reached, and they will vote on whether to strike, which would affect the scheduled September 9 school start date.
In advance of the vote, Seattle teachers picketed at the high schools, including at Roosevelt on Wednesday, September 2nd.
For bargaining updates from both sides, you can visit the Seattle Education Association’s website or the Seattle Public Schools website.
