Evergreen Park teachers to strike next Tuesday

Posted: Updated:
EVERGREEN PARK, Ill. (FOX 32 News) -

Teachers and school board officials in Evergreen Park School District 124 are scheduled to meet again Wednesday night in an effort to avoid a strike.

The teachers there are threatening to strike next Tuesday unless a contract deal is worked out.

The teachers set that strike deadline Monday night after four hours of talks with the school board failed to produce a new contract.

The two sides are still far apart on a number of issues including pay, disciplinary rules and a proposal that would tie bonuses to student test scores.
