Nov. 5 teacher strike still
possible at Line Mountain

As of the Sentinelís Oct. 20 press time, a teacherís strike in the Line Mountain School District remains a possibility.

Should a strike occur, it will begin Wednesday, Nov. 5, according to a date made public by the Line Mountain Education Association, the districtís teacher union.

Line Mountain teachers have been working under the terms of an agreement that expired June 30, 2012. Numerous negotiation sessions since that time reportedly have not produced a new pact.

The school district has posted strike-related information on its website Ė

If a strike is called Nov. 5, the district still must have 180 days of classes scheduled through Monday, June 15. Four holidays  Ė Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Yearís and Memorial Day Ė can not be used as make-up days. However, days originally scheduled for the Christmas/New Yearís break, as well as holidays in 2015, can be used if necessary, according to the district website.

The state Department of Education will inform the district and the LMEA how long the initial strike can last.

Only two strikes can be called during the 2014-15 school year, and the second can not occur until non-binding arbitration has been completed, the website stated.

Updates on this story will be published in the Sentinelís print edition and posted on the newspaperís website and Facebook page when new information becomes available.
