Perforated lockers are similar to the standard types of locker, but the door and walls are made largely or entirely of perforated steel, with hundreds of holes creating a strong mesh arranged in a diagonal pattern.

So...they've been banging their heads against the wall trying to negotiate all this time, but heaven forbid a (relatively) neutral 3rd party come in to verify the facts and supervise the negotiations? A strike is better? This is absurd. If they think the state will side with the district, well, that's what you get with the bizarro world of government employee unions, which shouldn't exist.
