Community College Board Threatens To Replace Striking Professors

I don't know enough about the specifics of this situation to know which side is "right" and which side is "wrong", but for a community college in liberal Oregon to threaten to replace their striking unionized professors, well, that's pretty impressive just on its face:
The Mt. Hood Community College faculty association offered a sharp response Tuesday to MHCC's plan to hire permanent replacements should union members decide to strike.

On Tuesday, MHCC's board announced it was prepared to hire full-time replacement faculty if union members walked out and administrators are reviewing applications.
