Denver Teachers Strike Over Base Pay

Teachers from the Denver Public Schools carry placards as they wait to march after a rally in support of a strike outside the State Capitol in Denver last month. Denver teachers plan to strike today.

After more than a year of negotiations, the teachers union and the school district still can’t agree on a base pay increase. The district’s plan depends too much on incentive bonuses, the union says.
