SEATTLE (AP) - As parents do their back-to-school shopping, some teachers across the state are still negotiating their contracts.

The Washington Education Association says teachers in Seattle, Spokane, Kelso and Pasco are still bargaining.

Spokane teachers have voted to go on strike Friday (Sept. 4) if they don’t have a contract by then. Seattle teachers are meeting on Thursday to either vote on a contract or a strike. Pasco teachers and the school district are in mediation to avoid a strike. The district and the union in Kelso have asked the state to send a mediator to help them with stalled contract talks.

Meanwhile, teachers in Highline and Renton are voting on new contracts Monday. Shoreline teachers will vote on Thursday and Auburn teachers are voting next week.
