Reference section for information, logistics concerning teacher walkout
On March 12, 2018, Union Public Schools Board of Education voted without dissent to allow its superintendent to shut down school for up to 25 days. More than 485 teachers were in attendance.
“I know this board agenda item says ‘25 days,’ but it will be indefinite as far as I’m concerned, until teachers get a pay raise,” said Kirt Hartzler, Union superintendent.
