Harlem Federation of Teachers in Illinois are on strike...on the first day of school, even! This is the first entry in Strikewatch for the 07-08 school year! More here.

Barnesville Education Association in Barnesville, Ohio have given notice to begin a strike on September 5th.

The Greenwich Education Association of Conneticut is fighting their district's attempt to inteject a merit pay plan that would be piloted at a few schools to non-tenured teachers only. Al Shanker would have a few things to say about that.

I found a charter school union blog...not much there, but it does exist.

If you ever wonder why teachers need tenure, you must read this story from Ontario.

Chi-town is heating up, Arne Duncan (CEO) and Mayor Daley say they aren't worried, but it'll be interesting to see what happens.
