Just before the start of the school year, teachers in Ohio's largest school system vote to strike.

Just a few days before the start of the new school year, teachers in Ohio's biggest school district decided to strike, according to the teachers' union.


It will be the first strike in many years, according to the Columbus Education Association, a union that represents over 4,000 teachers, nurses, and other education professionals in the Columbus City Schools distric


The Columbus Education Association (CEA) released a statement on Twitter stating that "94% of CEA members decided to reject the (school) Board's last, best and last offer and go on strike for the first time since 1975." The Columbus Education Association (CEA) is dedicated to negotiating for the welcoming, well-maintained, and resource-rich public schools that Columbus students deserve.


According to the Columbus Education Association's notice of intent to strike, the union said that the issue is learning environments, including class sizes and properly functioning heating and air conditioning in classrooms.


The decision of the vote was deemed "disappointing" by the Columbus Board of Education.


"The Columbus Education Association's (CEA) vote tonight is terribly disheartening. We regret the tragic circumstances that now confront our family, our neighborhood, and, most especially, our children "According to a board statement.


47,000 kids are enrolled in Columbus City Schools, according to the system.


The school year will still start on Wednesday despite the strike, but classes will be taught online and by substitutes, according to the school district's website.

There are other strikes going on this week in addition to the one at Columbus City Schools.


A union representing around 2,000 School District of Philadelphia employees voted to authorize a strike just one day prior to the Ohio vote, just over a week before classes are scheduled to begin.


The 32BJ SEIU union in Philadelphia is calling for better training programs and increased pay.
