Attorneys for the Washington Teachers Union are set to go to court today.
George Parker, President of the teacher's union, sent an email to thousands of D.C. Public School teachers saying attorneys would file a lawsuit today on behalf of the teachers who will be laid off. Last week almost 230 teachers received lay off notices. They will be paid by the District until November 2nd.
The WTU has also filed a class action grievance on behalf of the teachers and requested expedited arbitration.
