School canceled in Kankakee as strike looms
Information from: The Daily Journal,

KANKAKEE, Ill. - Authorities in Kankakee School District 111 say they don't see much chance of averting a teachers' strike.

District 111 Superintendent Colleen Legge released a statement Monday saying school will be closed Tuesday because of a strike.

Both Legge and Kankakee Federation of Teachers union president Sue Siedentop say no further negotiating sessions had been scheduled.

The two sides failed to reach an agreement during their 14th negotiating session last Friday. And on Sunday, about 200 of the 373-member teachers' union met to organize picket lines, make signs and rally.

The union and the district reached a tentative agreement Dec. 15, which averted a strike at that time. But the union membership rejected the proposal two days later on a vote of 142-to-121, and no replacement proposal has been put forward.
