Teachers in Colorado’s capital are planning to strike Monday for the first time in 25 years after failed negotiations with the school district over base pay.

The teachers union and Denver Public Schools met Saturday in an attempt to reach a new contract after more than a year of negotiations, but both sides left disappointed.

The Denver Classroom Teachers Association released a statement after the meeting saying the district’s proposal lacks transparency and “pushes for failed incentives for some over meaningful base salary for all.”

Gov. Jared Polis decided Wednesday against intervening to stop the strike but said he may step in if it drags on. It’s expected to cost about $400,000 a day to keep schools operating with substitutes and administrators.
