Police Almost Get Involved With Strike

Posted by wlpo on October 2, 2009

About a dozen Ottawa High School teachers staged a “sit-in” last night in a classroom, saying they wanted to be in school today and didn’t want last night’s negotiations session in when it did last night. 

OHS Principal Matt Winchester says the teacher’s knew of a strike protocol laid out by police that said they couldn’t be inside the school unless involved with negotiations.  Saying he was as respectful as he could be, Winchester told the teachers if they weren’t out by 7:30 this morning, “they knew what the next step would be”.  That next step would’ve been calling the police to forcibly remove the teachers.

The teachers eventually left without having the police involved.
