Denver Teachers Strike for First Time in 25 Years

Denver teachers are striking on Monday after negotiations between the Denver Classroom Teachers Association and Denver Public Schools district failed over the weekend.

It's the city's first teachers strike in 25 years.

The educators want the Professional Compensation System for Teachers reupped; it expired last month.

The system allows teachers and school support staff — like nurses — to earn extra money on top of their base pay.  The  teachers union  proposed a $28.5 million package, but the school district only offered up $23.3 million, according to Newsy affiliate KMGH-TV.  Denver Classroom Teachers Association said the educators are  striking for their students .

In a statement, the union said: "Both parties will take time to cool off and come back together Tuesday." The school district said all of the schools will be open and on  normal operating schedules  on Monday.  Additional reporting from  Newsy affiliate CNN .
