Denver academics will strike on Monday after negotiations with Denver Public Colleges fell via, the Denver Classroom Lecturers Affiliation mentioned Saturday.
The events had been negotiating for 14 months to overtake the district’s compensation system, which the union mentioned is tied to town’s trainer turnover price. The union mentioned trainer pay varies from 12 months to 12 months, as a result of the district’s pay system makes use of unpredictable bonuses to compensate for low base pay.
“The district spent the previous couple of weeks saying it heard what academics have been saying, but when given the chance tonight to avert a strike with a clear, aggressive proposal, DPS made the scenario worse and the strike inevitable,” the affiliation mentioned in an announcement.
Final month, 93% of the union’s practically 3,000 members voted to strike after negotiations with the varsity district failed.
On the time, the varsity district mentioned it was “dedicated to doing all the things in our energy to forestall a strike.”
This strike would be the first Denver academics’ strike since 1994.
