Theres more than 450 members of the union that represents the nurses, clerical workers and secretaries in the Palatine School District….
…..and they’re heading out on strike.
Union members told CBS 2 that they’ve been trying to reach a new deal with the district since early in the year, but they haven’t reached a dal yet.
School officials say they’ve been moving people around to help fill the staffing issues while the strike is going on, but have told parents that if they want to keep their kids home because of this…it will be an excused absence!
I’ll betcha the kids are really begging Mom and Dad for that!
COME ON MOM AND DAD…WE NEED TO SUPPORT THE UNION!
