Contract Negotiations Continue as Bourbonnais Teachers Vote on Next Step

For the first time since mid-December, representatives of the Bourbonnais Education Association and Bourbonnais School District 53 were back at the negotiation table Monday hoping to avoid a work stoppage by teachers.    A mediator has now joined to talks that have been ongoing for the last 10 months.  The Daily Journal reports the major sticking points are pay and benefits.   While both sides say they hope to avoid a strike, teachers today are voting to gauge what action members would support if mediation is not successful which could include a strike.
