An Unlikely Protest



I think it is not in the nature of teachers to be protesting. However, we Tallmadge teachers have not had a contract since the last one expired on August 14. Tonight we dressed in matching orange shirts and attended the board meeting in mass. Supporters from the neighboring communities of Stow and Cuyahoga Falls attended, also. These districts recently went through difficult negotations, but now have fair and equitable contracts.

Sorry to hear of the contract troubles. Good luck. I like the (UT orange) shirts!

It's a shame you should have to protest at all!

Boy, it sure would stink to retire on strike. I can't believe Stow worked it out before Tallmadge!
