Seattle teachers’ union balks at school return plan

  |  

SEATTLE (AP) — The Seattle public teachers’ union has filed unfair labor practice complaints against the city school district over actions it took to try to return some students to classrooms during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Seattle Public Schools is the state’s largest district and its approximately 47,000 students haven’t had access to in-person learning in almost a year.

The Seattle Times reports that on Sunday the Seattle Education Association filed three complaints with the state’s Public Employment Relations Commission alleging the district interfered with the rights of employees to collectively bargain working conditions, violating two state statutes.
