Superior Court reserves ruling on Tumwater teacher strike

Thurston County Superior Court Judge Chris Lanese reserved his ruling on the Tumwater School District’s request for an injunction that would order teachers back to work.

Judge Lanese cited his reason for reserving his ruling to be a “lack of evidence of substantial and irrefutable harm” to the school district caused by the strike, but was also very clear that it is illegal for teachers to strike.

Another hearing is set for 9:00 am on Wednesday morning, provided that the district and the teachers’ union have not reached an agreement on a contract by then.

Tumwater students were supposed to start school on Wednesday, September 5.
