ST. PAUL, Minn. - The St. Paul Federation of Teachers union is considering a strike vote.

Union officials say they'll decide Monday whether to put a strike to a membership vote after eight months of contentious contract talks. Teachers list these as their top priorities.

  • Smaller class sizes
  • Reducing testing
  • Provide access to pre-K for all St. Paul families
  • Improve opportunities for teachers and families to work together
  • Add more librarians, nurses, and counselors
  • Ensure students have access to art, physical education, and world languages.

The union and school district have struggled to agree on capping class sizes and reducing time spent on standardized tests.
