PUTNAM COUNTY, WV (WOWK) —  School buses in Putnam County have not moved Tuesday morning despite the superintendent’s order to keep schools in the county open during the statewide teacher strike, WOWK confirms.

This comes after the county’s Superintendent, John Hudson, refused to bow to pressure from teacher’s unions who declared a teach strike Monday night. 

Hudson made a recorded phone call Monday evening stating he expected employees to show up for work Tuesday.

Many people are on the picket lines from other counties to show their solidarity to Putnam County school employees.
