Union announces tentative deal to end Seattle teachers’ strike

(Sept. 15, 2015) — The Seattle Education Association (SEA) has announced that its negotiating team has reached a tentative agreement with Seattle Public Schools on a new contract that would end the strike that began last Wednesday. But the strike continues today and teachers and their supporters should report to their picket lines today.


Here is the announcement posted this morning on the SEA Facebook page:

The Seattle Education Association has reached a tentative contract agreement with the Seattle School Board, but the strike will continue until the SEA board and representative assembly review the agreement later today and decide whether to recommend approval to the SEA membership or continue striking.

SEA members should report to their picket locations today beginning at 8:30 am. SEA picket captains will provide more information to SEA members regarding next steps.
