Teacher’s strike avoided in Streator

Posted by wlpo on January 11, 2016

There will be no teacher’s strike in Streator.

With the help of a mediator, the Streator Education Association and Streator Elementary School Board of Education have agreed on a new three-year contract. The contract will cover 2014 through 2017 as teachers have been working with an expired contract.

Details of the new contract haven’t been released. It still needs to be ratified by the teacher’s union and officially approved by the school board.

Before Monday night’s agreement, the teacher’s union had taken a vote in support of a strike. The school district has made major cuts the past couple years including closing a school.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
