DENVER — Denver teachers voted overwhelmingly Tuesday to go on strike after more than a year of negotiations over base pay.

Rob Gould, lead negotiator for the Denver Classroom Teachers Association, said 93 percent of unionized teachers voted in favor of a strike. The union represents 5,635 educators in the Denver Public School system, which could see a strike as soon as Monday.

“They’re striking for better pay, they’re striking for our profession and they’re striking for Denver students,” Gould said.
