KELSO, Wash. (AP) - A judge on Friday ruled that striking teachers in Kelso are in contempt of court.

KOIN-TV reports (https://is.gd/2D4gKQ) the judge said he would fine the union $2,000 a day if teachers don’t go back to work. Their strike entered its eighth day on Friday, but negotiations were scheduled to resume Friday afternoon.

Teachers have voted to stay on strike in defiance of a court order telling them to go back to school.

Teachers and other educators had been working without a contract in Kelso since June 30.

Kelso School District serves more than 4,500 students. Kelso Education Association represents some 300 teachers and other certified educators.
