DPS teachers begin voting on strike after negotiations with district fail
DENVER — On Saturday, Denver Public Schools teachers began voting on whether to strike after the teachers union and the school district were unable to reach an agreement on teacher pay Friday. DPS and the Denver Classroom Teachers Association negotiated for 10 hours Friday before the contract expired at midnight. Teachers voted Saturday and will continue voting Tuesday on whether to strike for the first time since 1994. The first possible day to strike would be Jan. 28.
