PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Staffers at the Pennsylvania School for the Deaf have overwhelmingly voted to unionize.
Teachers and support staff today voted 149-12 to be represented by the American Federation of Teachers.
Teachers at the school in Germantown said they wanted more of a say over working conditions.
