The Pueblo Education Association posted on Facebook Wednesday evening that they asked to meet wih the district Thursday at 10 a.m. According to the post, administrators replied that they need until Saturday.

This news means the strike is set to continue the duration of the week.

Earlier Wednesday, the head of the union, Suzanne Ethredge, told Next that they haven't had any negotiations since teachers walked out Monday.

Teachers want a two percent raise, retroactive to this year. The district is offering a raise next year.

This is Colorado's first teachers' strike since 1994.
