Negotiation Tactics Under Question

Posted by wlpo on October 7, 2009

The Ottawa teacher’s union doesn’t think the school board is playing fair.

The union has filed an unfair labor practice suit with the Illinois Education Labor Relations Board.  The union accuses the board of “making a regressive proposal” and “placing pre-conditions on negotiation meetings”.  This has to do with the board’s insistence that teachers show them new proposals in writing before a negotiation meeting actually takes place.

The labor relations board will now investigate the teacher’s claim and see if a formal complaint and hearing is needed.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
