Federal Mediator Expected To Meet With Both Sides In East St. Louis Teachers’ Strike

East St. Louis, IL  (KTRS)  The East St. Louis teachers’ strike is now in its tenth school day.

Both sides are expected to meet this afternoon with a federal mediator. This will mark the second time a federal mediator has been brought in since the strike began.  Pay is the main issue surrounding this labor dispute.

Meanwhile, the school board held an emergency meeting yesterday and passed a resolution allowing athletic teams to resume practice.  The East St. Louis Flyers football team has forfeited two games so far this season. That’s because Illinois High School Association policy won’t let students participate during a strike unless the school board allows it.
