Union Uses Pinkertons to Manhandle Union Employees Blocking Union Headquarters to Prevent Union Managers from Crossing Union Picket Line (Got All That?)

“We are disappointed we could not complete negotiations before the PSU contract expired. OEA is ready to meet at any time to resolve our remaining issues,” said OEA President Patricia Frost-Brooks in a statement.
OEA was able to reach a tentative agreement with the union representing support staff, but it won’t help OEA immediately, since the support staff will honor the professional staff’s picket line.
This is the first OEA staff strike since 1997.
UPDATE #2: The Buckeye Institute has video of the picket line. Looks more like a sit-down to me.
UPDATE #3: Even if you finished your popcorn, you’ll need a box of Jujubes for these photos of the street theater going on in front of OEA headquarters.
