Posted by wlpo on March 4, 2013

DIXON, Ill. (AP) – The teachers strike in Dixon continues into this week.
The Dixon Education Association and the Dixon School Board stopped talks late Sunday without an agreement. Classes are canceled Monday and another negotiation session is set for tonight. The 168 teachers went on strike Thursday.

The union president says financial issues and classroom conditions will be discussed tonight. She says agreements were reached on length of the school day and school year. Teachers have requested 3.75 percent annual pay increase and salary incentives for experience and education.
