Metro East Teachers Authorize Ten-Day Strike Notice

(Alton, IL) — Alton teachers are not pleased with the school board’s most recent contract offer. They voted yesterday to turn it down. The union then authorized the issuing of a ten-day strike notice. No walkout date has been set. Alton teachers are currently working under a 2014-2015 deal. The two sides are divided over salary and fully paid health insurance benefits.
