St. Paul teachers to rally Tuesday


Just days before a scheduled strike vote, members of the St. Paul Federation of Teachers will rally at school district headquarters.

The rally will take place Tuesday, Feb. 18, at 5 p.m. before the Board of Education meeting at St. Paul district headquarters, 360 Colborne St.

Members of the St. Paul Federation of Teachers have taken a strong position in support of smaller class sizes, increased educational opportunities and less standardized testing.

The union said no progress has been made on these issues in contract negotiations and has scheduled a strike vote on Feb. 24.

Informational meetings for members are scheduled Feb. 21, 22 and 23.
