Biden Cancels Remarks At Teacher's Group Confab After Staffers Strike

US President Joe Biden will no longer speak at a gathering of the largest US teacher's union following the union staff's announcement of a strike, Doina Chiacu and Nandita Bose reported for Reuters.

The National Education Association Staff Union (NEASU) initiated the strike on Friday, urging supporters to join their picket line outside the NEA's convention in Philadelphia over the weekend. 


The White House confirmed Biden's decision, citing his strong support for unions and his refusal to cross a picket line.



While Biden still plans to travel to Pennsylvania, details on his revised schedule will be shared later.


The union has recently filed two unfair labor practice complaints with the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), involving overtime nonpayment and unanswered information requests. 



The NEA acknowledged misinformation about the ongoing contract negotiations but reiterated its commitment to a fair bargaining process that balances the interests of members, affiliates, and staff, and reflects their mutual commitment to students, union values, and social justice.
