Teachers Strike Authorized in Pottsville

POTTSVILLE, Pa. -- Teachers in the Pottsville Area School District announced a vote to authorize a strike, but stress nothing is planned for the near future.

Union members tell Newswatch 16 they are working without a contract.

According to a letter given to the board, the union noted that, despite the authorization, it does not mean a strike is imminent in the Pottsville Area School District.
