Westlake Teachers overwhelmingly voted to strike Wednesday.

The strike vote comes in response to the board of education's Monday decision to implement a contract teachers rejected last month.

The strike goes into effect June 24th for summer programs. The district released a statement saying it is working to find coverage for programs already in progress. 

All other teachers will begin their strike effective August 18th.
