Philadelphia teacher union urges a one-day strike

Local AFL-CIO leaders voted to recommend that their 250,000 members join striking public school teachers in a one-day general strike Oct. 28 to "close down this city."

Meanwhile, the Philadelphia Federation of Teachers paid the third installment Wednesday of a $10,000-a-day fine imposed for violating a court's back-to-work order. The union is protesting layoffs and canceled pay increases which the school distric says it can't afford because it is underfunded.
