Tentative Agreement Reached For Unit 2 Teachers

It has been announced a tentative agreement has been reached on a contract for Bond County Community Unit 2 teachers.

A five hour negotiation session was held last Thursday night.

A joint statement, issued by Greenville Education Association President Scott Spencer and Unit 2 Superintendent Wes Olson, advised that the sides, with the assistance of a federal mediator, emerged from the session with a tentative agreement.

Members of the teachers’ association will meet Tuesday to vote on the proposal. If it is approved, the school board will hold a special meeting to vote on the contract.

Thursday evening, Unit 2 teachers conducted informational picketing at the Unit 2 central office, where the negotiation meeting was held.

Unit 2 Teachers and non-certified staff members have been working this school year without a contract.
