DETROIT, Mich. (WXYZ) - Leaders of the Detroit Federation of Teachers will meet to consider options after the Detroit Public School emergency manager imposed a new contract.
The law gives state appointed emergency manager Roy Roberts power to impose terms on employees, regardless if they agree with the terms or not.
Roberts released a statement saying the agreement provides the flexibility necessary for schools to be successful and to meet the educational needs of children and families. He also says the contract will produce the savings necessary to remove the district's debt.
The president of the Detroit Federation of Teachers, Keith Johnson, warns there is no guarantee that school will start on time under the imposed contract.
