Teacher’s Strike Possible In Anoka-Hennepin District

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – A teacher’s strike could be looming in the Anoka-Hennepin District.

The Anoka-Hennepin District and its 2,800 teachers have been negotiating a new contract for 10 months with little results.

The teachers union will meet 4:45 p.m. Monday to schedule a strike authorization vote.

Teachers have been asking for a pay raise and no change to their benefits.

In a statement, the Anoka-Hennepin School District said they’re dedicated to a settlement, but that the teachers’ current demands are too expensive.
