We believe that during work stoppage or strikes by educational personnel, the PTA should act as a source of information, maintain its position as advocates for children, and urge educational personnel to return to their work assignments while continuing negotiations.
In the case of a strike, important points to remember are:
- That the PTA does not take a side in this matter.
- The PTA does not staff classrooms.
- PTA does not march in picket lines or distribute literature from either side.
