Potential Strike at Altamont School District


ALTAMONT - The Altamont school district is preparing for a potential strike, on behalf of nearly 30 support staff.

The president of the Altamont Educational Support Personnel Association, Charlene Calhoun, says the 30 employees are comprised of custodians, cooks, bus drivers and secretaries who are some of the most underpaid in the country.

The association will strike for ten days starting Tuesday, if negotiations are not met.

She hopes there will be a resolution reached at the bargaining meeting, this evening.
