The vote is in: Union leadership is now authorized to call an indefinite strike as long as a council of representatives from each school approve it first. (As long as it’s less than 10 days long, it’s considered a “short strike” and it won’t need the council’s approval.) The proposal won 75 percent approval last night.
The turnout was roughly the same as it was in January — 755 votes out of a membership of 2,800, including substitutes,according to OEA’s website. That’s about 25 percent.
