4. my teacher's union and i went on strike this last fall.
the strike lasted two weeks. teachers received much support from students, parents and the community but corporate influences in demanding that teachers lose security in their jobs is strong.
i hope that these teachers are prepared for a battle.
they will get my support in any case.

They have not even heard the decision from the arbiter. I guess they were not expecting good news......or trying to influence the decision. Either way, it could get ugly.
