Statement Regarding Teacher Contract Negotiations
Posted on 09/19/2014
Waukegan Community Unit School District # 60 has received a notice from the Teachers Union expressing their intent to strike over contract issues. While the Union’s decision is disappointing, we remain committed to the ongoing federal mediation process and we continue to work toward solutions that would avert a disruption in our students’ education. Throughout this negotiation, the District has done, and will continue to do, everything in its power to maintain fairness and offer the teachers reasonable compromises on salary, benefits and other demands. In light of the Union’s notice, we are now gathering resources and information to help our students, parents and staff prepare for a potential strike beginning on, or after, October 2. Next week we will update the community on the situation and its potential impact.
