Teachers' strike in Kelso a concern as school year gets underway

Posted: Updated:
KELSO, WA (KPTV) -

As the school year gets underway in Kelso this week, there is concern that a strike could keep teachers out of the classroom.

The Daily News reports that the Kelso Teachers Union will start informational picketing in a week or two if the school district does not return to the bargaining table.

Teachers have been bargaining with the district for months, and have not reached a deal.

Right now, more than 300 teachers represented by the union are working without a contract.
