Teachers Strike In Pa

09.04.13 | Bob Price

Teachers are walking the picket lines in Old Forge in Lackawanna County and in the Wyoming Area School District of Luzerne County too.  In Old Forge the job action has mostly to do with Health Care Costs.  The Educators have been working without a contract since 2010.  The Wyoming teachers are upset that they’ve not had a pay increase in 3 years. Both strikes come just a few days after the start of the school year, and both are causing stress for parents and students alike.  The job action could last for 3 weeks.
