The Stroudsburg Area School District Administration has postponed its impending teachers’ strike following productive discussions, according to the school district’s website.

Teachers in the district were set to hit picket lines January 3, but the Stroudsburg Area Education Association has since pushed back the strike date to February 6. The teachers’ association decided to postpone the work stoppage to allow for more time to reach an agreement.

Stroudsburg Area teachers have been working without a contract since June 2015.

    Teachers be like: I’m a teacher and I want MORE. Waa waa. Kick whine gripe. I will not contribute to my own health care. Nope. And more money. Yes. I earn $59K but I demand $63K, no, $75K a year …and add 10% every year until 2030. Retroactive back to 1986 too. I get summers off also, but I want to go on a taxpayer funded cruise during breaks. Yes. Add a cruise or I will go on STRIKE. What are you going to do about it taxpayer? Do you want your kids to suffer? They will unless I get more. Gimme more. More I say! Otherwise ….it’s unfair. Boo hoo. It’s a hardship being poor little exploited teacher me. Never mind every other job in PA where equally educated workers are lucky to get mere scraps. No wonder the public perceives you as a greedy, manipulative bunch.

    I am hopeful, that Trump and the GOP (notoriously anti-union) are going to put a stop to this nonsense. It is greed; plain and simple.
