Board President Says Teachers Are Acting Petty

Posted by wlpo on October 9, 2009

Could Sunday’s negotiation session be the last chance before drastic action is taken by the Ottawa High School board?

Board President George Hupp says he’s giving teachers one more chance to make a serious offer.  If they don’t, Hupp says the meeting will end quickly and the board could start pursuing other options.  That would include going to arbitration or finding replacement teachers.  Hupp says both are drastic options but something they have to think about.  

Until now, Hupp has insisted teachers send a proposal to him in advance.  He says due to the teacher’s “pettiness”, the board decided to drop this stance for this meeting only.
