Medford Union Supporters Plan Occupation
Supporters of the striking Medford teachers are being called to occupy the offices of the Medford School District this morning. A facebook effort has been launched, urging supporters to go to the offices at 7 this morning.
Union officials say they don’t know who is organizing the event, but it is posted as a peaceful protest.
In a comment on the Occupy549C facebook page, the author says he recognizes that teachers will not be able to go on the district property, but urges teachers to ask family and friends to participate.
Over 1750 people have been invited through facebook, and over 100 have responded they plan on attending.
Meanwhile, talks are expected to continue today between the striking teachers and district officials, as the strike heads into the third week.
