Minneapolis teachers union files unfair labor practice charge against school district
January 27, 2021
Leaders of the Minneapolis teachers union have taken the rare step of filing an unfair labor practice charge against Minneapolis Public Schools, saying the district has refused to negotiate crucial safety measures for educators returning to in-person teaching.
It's been more than two decades since the Minneapolis Federation of Teachers and Education Support Professionals filed such a charge with the Public Employment Relations Board, according to the union.
The charge, filed Monday, states that "the district has yet to negotiate over the critical terms and conditions of employment involved in a safe return to in-person teaching and learning."
