If you really want to worry your sister-in-law, send her this link and ask her if any of this is beginning to sound or look familiar to her.After church we had lunch with my wife's sister who is a special ed teacher in Loveland. She told us that she and her friends were talking about how they couldn't afford to be on strike for two months like the teachers in Strongsville.
She said they were worried after watching what the OEA did up north and they didn't want to do what those teacher had to do to get the same contract they were offered two months ago. She got kind of teary eyed at the thought of going a couple months without pay and I know she isn't one sitting around with two months worth of living expenses she can live off of in an emergency. She got more worried when we told her about the opening bid by the OEA in Springboro.
This is the NEA Strategy Directives to Field Representatives for Difficult Negotiations.
It provides a sneak peak at what is about to transpire, tell her to read it and see if she is getting a glimpse of the future. Look for the various steps at a strike rally near her.
Tell her to run away as fast as possible or she may wish she had those savings.
