SEATTLE — Faculty at three Seattle community colleges will walk out of classes on Thursday to protest ongoing contract negotiations.
Students may walk out as well in support of the teachers.
The district includes Seattle Central College, North Seattle College, South Seattle College and Seattle Vocational Institute.
The union cites workload, lack of many full-time positions and inequity in work and pay among faculty on campuses as among the issues that its teachers are facing.
The district has offered the teachers an 11.1 percent raise over three years for full-time faculty, and a 7.8 percent raise for part-time faculty, according to the Seattle Times.
