DETROIT (WXYZ) - Hundreds of Detroit Public School teachers rallied outside District offices in the New Center Area Thursday to protest a new contract imposed on them by Emergency Manager Roy Roberts.
Keith Johnson, President of the Detroit Federation of Teachers (DFT), calls the newly imposed contract a "doctrine" because Johnson says there was no collective bargaining involved.
Steve Wasko, spokesman for the District, says Roberts continues to look at the best route going forward.
Wasko added that any strike would be foolish and could cost any participating teacher their state certification.
