The Nation : Detroit School Strike Ends

September 18, 1987

Detroit's city school system and the city teachers' union reached tentative agreement on a contract, ending a 17-day strike that had kept 11,500 teachers and 193,000 students out of classrooms. Classes may begin as soon as Monday, if teachers ratify the agreement, Detroit Federation of Teachers President John Elliott said. The union was seeking a 14% salary raise in a one-year pact. Teacher strikes affecting nearly 520,000 students continued in Illinois, Michigan, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Ohio, Washington and Pennsylvania.
