Den­ver teach­ers to strike Mon­day as talks stall

Sun Sentinel Palm Beach Edition - - NATION & WORLD -

DEN­VER — Den­ver teach­ers are plan­ning to strike Mon­day for the first time in 25 years af­ter failed ne­go­ti­a­tions with the school dis­trict over base pay.

The teach­ers union and Den­ver Pub­lic Schools met Satur­day in an at­tempt to reach a new con­tract af­ter more than a year of ne­go­ti­a­tions, but both sides left dis­ap­pointed.

The Den­ver Class­room Teach­ers As­so­ci­a­tion re­leased a state­ment af­ter the meet­ing say­ing the dis­trict’s pro­posal lacks trans­parency and “pushes for failed in­cen­tives.”

“We will strike Mon­day for our stu­dents and for our pro­fes­sion,” said Henry Ro­man, pres­i­dent of the teach­ers union.

Mean­while, schools Su­per­in­ten­dent Su­sana Cor­dova said she was “ex­tremely dis­ap­pointed” that the union walked away from the ta­ble.
