Although retired teachers and some others with the school community got paid a weeks due bonus members of the locals with the National Education Worker’s Union decided to stay on strike.

In public statements released in social media, the union’s locals 2 and 37 announced that the strike will continue until the state pays the bonus to all employees.

Iñiguez, along with the union’s Local 2 Secretary General Juan Enrique Villanueva decided to keep the strike that has affected hundreds of thousands of students statewide.
