The teachers union has been in contract negotiations with the St. Paul School District for eight months. Union and school district officials can’t agree on capping class sizes and the amount of time spent on standardized tests.
Monday, the executive board will decide whether to call for a strike-authorization vote. Under state law, the union would have to give the district 10 days notice before striking. The last time St. Paul educators walked out was back in 1946, which was the first teacher strike in the U.S.
