Catholic high school teachers will rally outside archdiocese

    Just as the archdiocese is gearing up for the installation of Archbishop Charles Chaput, Catholic high school teachers will rally outside the archdiocese building this afternoon as their strike continues.

    The Association of Catholic Teachers approved the stike Tuesday after contract negotiations with the diocese fell off. Classes resumed this week, though more than 700 teachers are involved in the strike.

    “Teachers are eager to get back in the classroom and teach their students,” reads an ACT statement, “but they need a contract that continues to provide them with dignity and respect.”

    Negotiations are expected to resume today.
