‘Impasse’ in vocabulary at D-158
HUNTLEY – District 158 teachers are discussing declaring a formal impasse in contract talks with the district, but the union president said a decision is not imminent.
Declaring an impasse would be the last procedural move for the Huntley Education Association to go on strike. HEA’s 600-plus members authorized the union to call a strike last month.
But HEA co-President Julie McLaughlin downplayed talk of declaring an impasse – an option that is open to the school board, as well – saying that any union has to start discussing the option when negotiations reach the mediation phase.
