OHS strike enters a new week, rally planned

Posted by wlpo on October 5, 2009

Ottawa High School will be a quiet place this morning.  A teacher’s strike cancels a fourth day of school Monday. 

The strike began last Wednesday after the teacher’s union and school board couldn’t agree on a contract.  The two disagree on health insurance contributions.

They last met for negotiating Thursday.  It’s unclear when they’ll met again.

A rally in support of the teachers has been planned for 4:30 this afternoon in Washington Park in Ottawa.
