Detroit Federation of Teachers President Janna Garrison opened the court-ordered meeting saying, "We don't have a contract," which immediately brought the thousands of teachers inside Cobo Hall to their feet, chanting, "No contract, no work."
With little preamble, Garrison and the DFT board stood and read the judge's order out loud, and Garrison declared the meeting adjourned.
Teachers again erupted into chanting and raised their arms in defiance and solidarity. The entire session lasted less than five minutes. |Detroit Free Press|
