West Chicago teachers' union rejects settlement offer

WEST CHICAGO — At a meeting Wednesday, the Elementary Teachers' Association of West Chicago (ETAWC) rejected the District 33 Board of Education's settlement offer that included changes to its healthcare and retirement proposals, according to a district news release.

The offer would have delayed implementation of healthcare changes and eliminated the healthcare cap.

The ETAWC had previously delivered an intent to strike notification Dec. 21 after the union and school board failed to negotiate a contract agreement.

Based on when the notification was filed, a strike could have started as early as Monday, students' first day back after winter break.

No additional meetings are scheduled at this time.
