The two sides in a contract dispute between Alton teachers and the school district will meet again on Monday. Last month the membership of the Alton Education Association resoundingly rejected a contract offer by the Alton School District. Monday’s bargaining session will also include a federal mediator.
The head of the teacher’s union has said the members are very aware a strike is possible if an agreement is not reached with the next set of negotiations. Teachers have been working without a contract since the start of the school year.
