Defying judge’s order, Tumwater teachers stay on strike; district threatens to seek ‘relief’ in court
TUMWATER, Wash. -- Teachers on strike in Tumwater voted Wednesday afternoon to defy a judge's order to return to work. Members of the Tumwater Education Association said the strike, now in its 12th day, will continue, despite Thurston County Superior Court Chris Lanese's ruling that the strike is causing "sufficient harm" to the district and the students it serves, particularly students with special needs.
