’Safety strikes’ threatened by American Federation of Teachers

The American Federation of Teachers has called for ’safety strikes’ and said this is the last option it will resort to if negotiations over reopening of schools do not meet with demands for keeping educators safe and healthy amid the pandemic. The Union President said ’Just as we have done with our health care workers, we will fight on all fronts for the safety of students and their educators’.

And to add to this, there is the possibility of the children dying as well. This virus emerges in waves, and the next big one shouldn't start from schools right?
