    it appears the state bargained on the new contract in bad faith. don't negotiate what you won't sign. as the article mentioned, it has been over a year since the contract agreement was concluded. there is an obligation of the parties, the union and the state, to negotiate in good faith. refusing to sign what was negotiated is hardly good faith bargining

    i see a number of folks bashing labor, but where is the criticism of a management group which would allow this kind of situation to develop

    I agree. Fire their dumb asses too!
    I came into this world fighting, screaming and covered in someone else's blood. I have no problem going out the same way.

    Teachers are represented by the California Teachers Association, not the SEIU.

    that's strange. in the OP - your OP - and from your cite - this was found:
    The SEIU represents about 95,000 state employees, including clerical workers and teachers.

    you should correct them

    So they strike?

    Big deal.

    The longer they strike, the less they get paid.

    The longer they strike, the more voters realize they're not needed.

    Sounds all to the good to me.

    You should do your own research:

    Overview | CTA
    The California Teachers Association represents and serves more than 340,000 members, consisting of teachers and other education employees, including Education Support Professionals (ESPs).
    SEIU - Service Employees International Union - Fast Facts
    Public Services - SEIU is the second largest union of public service employees with 850,000 local and state government workers, public school employees, bus drivers, and child care providers - 49,000 of which joined SEIU in early 2005 in one of the largest union elections in U.S. history.
    The Reuters reporter has a small factual error. The SEIU represents child care workers, including Head Start "teachers", but most actual teachers in California are members of the CTA.

    I agree. I think the strike would be a step forward for the state. I still don't have faith though that next year at election time Californians will see to it to fire all of their elected officials that caused this mess. I'm sure the majority of them will be sent back to Sacramento.

    What I provided was a news update on the SEIU, that shows the SEIU willing to strike if necessary to maintain the status quo in California. Your teapot tempest about teachers (whom the SEIU does not represent and would not be affected by this) does not alter the folly of their gesture, nor the wisdom of firing the whole sorry lot of them should they be so kind as to strike.

    Do try to stay on topic.
