OTTAWA - The teachers and school board have scheduled a meeting at 6 p.m. today at Ottawa Township High School in ongoing contract negotiations.
A teachers' strike began Wednesday after a breakdown in negotiations over insurance and salary issues.
A federal mediator will be present.
Glenn Weatherford, president of OTHS Education Association, in announcing the meeting, asked "anybody and everybody," whether they're on the teachers' side or not to gather in front of the school before the meeting to rally to encourage a settlement.
He said a silent vigil also is planned.
