Teachers and school board reach tentative agreement
Champaign - Progress for the Champaign teachers has been made.
The Champaign Federation of Teachers have reached a tentative agreement with the Unit 4 Board of Education. The union will be arranging a membership meeting for a vote to take place.
The union will not comment further on the tentative agreement until the team has had a chance to present the tentative agreement and members have had a chance to vote. The teachers and school board members have been trying to come up with a contract since May.
Both sides met in order to hammer out the terms and their contract. The earliest teacher could strike is October 18th.
