Elgin Community College and its faculty reach tentative contract agreement, will likely avoid strike

 
Chicago Tribune
 
Elgin Community College and its faculty reached a tentative contract agreement this morning, just days before teachers could have gone on strike.

“Needless to say, I’m thrilled to have this settled for the interest of our students because it was becoming very disruptive to their education,” said Eleanor MacKinney, chair of the board of trustees.

The agreement was reached about 5 a.m. after a 12-hour mediation session. MacKinney would not provide details on the deal because it still has to be ratified by the union.

Trustees and union members began negotiating in October to replace a contract that expired Dec. 31. They began mediation on March 10.

Faculty members have continued to be paid under the old contract and have been working to rule, which means they perform only the minimum duties that document requires.

On April 7, the 500-member ECC Faculty Association filed a notice with the state giving it the option to strike after 10 days.
