    That’s a fact. Teachers issued the strike notice late in August threatening to down their tools in September 3. That ‘s a very short notice by any standards. Further more they had not exhausted all other civilized avenues to justify a strike of such magnitude. Strike which affects the lives of innocent children should be a last resort action. This action is tantamount to dictatorship by Union leaders and makes them loose moral authority to accuse top leaders of the same dictatorship. Arm-twisting and blackmail has dented the teaching fraternity image.
