District 33 teachers strike enters 2nd day
Classes are canceled for 4,000 students for a second day as Teachers in West Chicago return to the picket lines.
A special closed door session of the West Chicago Board of Education was held last night. No word on when talks will resume between the board and District 33’s teachers.
Contract negotiations failed over the weekend.
Talks have have been going on for more than a year. Recently, there was an offer on the table. But the board and teachers have not resolved issues on salary, health insurance, retirement benefits and teacher appraisal.
The strike will affect more than 4,000 students in seven schools and two pre-school programs.
