Oklahoma State Workers Association Promises Strike if No Pay Raise


State employees plan to join Oklahoma teachers in a walkout.. 
The Oklahoma Public Employees Association  decided Saturday  that state workers will strike if pay raises aren't approved by April 2nd. That's also  when teachers plan to go on strike if demands for pay  raises aren't met. 
Neither teachers nor state workers have received across the board pay raises since 2008. 
 And Ottawa County Department of Human Services officials said its workers are  already doing more work  with less staff.  Teachers want a six thousand dollar per person pay raise. The OPEA wants  more than two hundred thirteen million dollars in raises from lawmakers.
