Teachers started picketing outside a local business where a Strongsville board member works.
Striking Strongsville teachers tried a new tactic Tuesday, sending protesters to the workplace of School Board member Carl Naso in Beachwood. Naso said about 40 union supporters, some carrying signs with his employer's phone number, walked and yelled in front of his office from about 3 to 6 p.m. "They shouted and bullied my coworkers as they went in and out of the building," Naso said.
