Negotiations to resume in East St. Louis teacher strike

( KTRS ) Negotiations resume in an East St. Louis teachers’ strike that has idled more than 6,000 students since the start of October.

School district officials and union leaders are scheduled to meet today after failing to reach an agreement during a 10-hour session Tuesday. Seven other negotiating sessions also ended without a deal.

The teachers went on strike after union members rejected a tentative deal to give each teacher a one-time payment of $2,000 and modest raises.

The district has been under state control since 2011 due to poor performance.
