The Nation

September 11, 1987

Union teachers in Marquette, Mich., went back to school, but strikes that have affected 700,000 students in seven states dragged on and talks appeared deadlocked in the two largest walkouts in Chicago and Detroit. More than 55,000 teachers and support staff were on strike in 22 school districts in Illinois, Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, New Jersey and Washington state. Marquette teachers earlier settled their contract dispute but refused to end their walkout until support workers also had new contracts. In Chicago, no new bargaining sessions were scheduled between the teachers' union and the school board.
