    Sounds more like the union is the one doing it to the children they teach and the parents who will have to find some way if they both work to take care of those children who cannot be at home alone during the day. Nothing new for the teachers as they use this to get what they want others cannot strike in some public sector jobs and have to make do with a normal bargaining process to arrive at what they want.
