MAYWOOD, Ill. — A teacher’s strike that spanned nearly three weeks in Proviso Township District 209 will soon conclude following news that both sides have settled on contract terms.

The district and WSTU Local 517, which represents teachers, announced a new three-year contract Wednesday, which runs through 2024.

As a result, students will return to class Monday, March 28.

Union members are expected to finalize the agreement in the coming weeks.

“We are pleased to reach an agreement that prioritizes our students, parents, and communities,” Proviso teachers union president Maggie Riley said. “Our membership will be voting on the tentative agreement next week.”

Proviso Math and Science Academy, Proviso East High School and Proviso West High School were closed amid contract talks over teacher pay, retirement, and classes sizes. The strike affected 280 educators and about 4,300 students.
