YouTube video shows Strongsville substitute's experience walking past striking teachers

STRONGSVILLE, Ohio - A new video posted to YouTube Friday shows what is apparently a Strongsville substitute teacher's experience walking into a school during the strike.

The video is titled "EXCLUSIVE: Through the eyes of a terrorized Strongsville substitute teacher" and has been viewed about 300 times since it was posted.

The group that posted it, Strike Facts – the Strongsville Community Action Committee, is lobbying against the teachers' union. A member of that organization said the video was recorded March 3 in front of the Strongsville Police Department.

In the video, the protesters are heard chanting "shame on you" and one man is heard saying "you are a piece of sh**."

Talks between the teachers union and school board are ongoing. Several meetings called by the federal mediator turned up with no agreement.

The teachers strike has now been going on for more than a month.
