Eagle Point school employees go on strike


Teachers and other school employees went on strike Tuesday in Eagle Point, leading the Southern Oregon district to cancel classes the rest of the week while negotiations continued.

It’s the second school strike of the spring in Oregon, which hadn’t seen a teacher walkout since 2006.

The strike began at 6 a.m. in Jackson County School District 9, said Dave Carrell, acting president of the Eagle Point Education Association. Negotiators who had worked all night continued to bargain.
