East Stroudsburg teachers expected to strike this morning

EAST STROUDSBURG – Teachers, working without a contract for two years, are expected to be on a picket line, not in classrooms at the East Stroudsburg school District this morning. 

A statement posted on the district website reads in part:

“…  the East Stroudsburg Education Association (ESEA) intends to strike effective Monday, September 10, 2018.  Therefore, all East Stroudsburg Area School District classes are canceled, effective September 10, 2018, until further notice.  The maximum duration of any strike in the state of Pennsylvania is determined by the Department of Education and is based upon the school district's calendar.   Notice will be provided by telephone and email 48 hours before classes resume.”

Talks broke down last week with the district and the teachers’ association unable to come to terms.
