Still No Contract for Valley View Teachers

As of Nov. 21, Valley View School District and Valley View Council Local 604 of the American Federation of Teachers had yet to reach a contract agreement.

The contract for Valley View School District 365U teachers expired in August, and as of Nov. 21, according to the Bolingbrook Bugle, there still has been no agreement for a new one. 

A proposed contract was voted down overwhelmingly in September based on salary, higher insurance premiums and changes to the daily schedule, the story said. Of the 1,800 certified and classified members, 92 percent rejected the contract. 

The union received a counter proposal and the union and the district are continuing negotiations, according to the Bugle, but an agreement is not likely before the end of the year.

Does this maybe mean a strike if nothing is agreed on?
