OHS teachers strike after talks fail

Posted by wlpo on September 29, 2009

Differences about health insurance have the teacher’s union and school board at Ottawa High School unable to reach a new teacher’s contract. Teacher’s say they’re on strike starting Wednesday morning.
Negotiations broke down after a four-hour long meeting Tuesday.
On the school’s website, the board says they’ve offered a one percent salary increase for each year of a two or three year contract, no insurance contribution from the teaching staff for single coverage, and an insurance contribution by the teachers for family coverage of 172 dollars per month in year one.
The next negotiating session has yet to be scheduled. In the meantime classes and all school related activities are cancelled.
