KELSO, Wash. (AP) - Teachers in the southwestern Washington town of Kelso have voted to go on strike starting Wednesday (Sept. 16) if they don’t have a contract by then.

Kelso Education Association officials said in a news release that educators on Monday evening voted overwhelmingly to strike after working without a contract since June 30.

Kelso School District and association officials have had several meetings with a mediator and remain at odds mostly over teacher pay and workloads.

A mediator will be available to both groups on Tuesday.
