D-158's teachers union rejects tentative deal

ALGONQUIN – Members of the District 158's teachers union rejected a tentative agreement with the district earlier this week, according to a district news release.

The district and the Huntley Education Association tentatively agreed to a new contract Sept. 5, but HEA members rejected it on Monday. The release, sent out this afternoon, does not explain what issues caused the union to reject the tentative deal.

But the district board and HEA leaders will continue to work and solve its impasse, the release states.

In August, both negotiating parties requested a third-party mediator to resolve its contract differences. Officials from both sides were tight-lipped then on what issues has caused negotiations to stagnate.

The teachers continue to be paid off a contract that expired this summer. Last year, the two parties agreed to a short, one-year deal that froze some HEA compensation levels from 2011.
