The head of the state’s teachers union says although Indiana law does not allow them to strike, there are a number of methods that educators can use to get their point across that they need more pay.
Although lawmakers tend to agree that teachers need more pay, Governor Eric Holcomb is suggesting they wait a couple of years in order to fully explore the long-term impact of such a move.
However, Teresa Meredith of the Indiana State Teachers Association says teachers have waited too long for a meaningful raise.
She says if lawmakers don’t do something concrete next session, teachers will take action and while state law does not allow them to strike, she tells Indy Politics there are numerous other steps they can take.
