OTHS Strike Rolls On

Posted by wlpo on October 13, 2009

School is closed again today at Ottawa High School.  Tomorrow will mark exactly two weeks since teachers took to the picket line.

After the last negotiation session Sunday, School Board President George Hupp asked all the teachers to vote on the board’s latest offer, not just the dozen or so who make up the teacher’s negotiating team.  The teacher’s union hasn’t expressed any interest in doing this.  The sides are still well apart in health insurance salary figures.

Hupp says the recent death of John Harrison doesn’t mean the sides can’t meet this week.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
