With thousands of construction workers out on strike, one suburban school district will seek a restraining order next week to try and get work on the school finished by the time classes resume in the fall.

Naperville Central High School officials will file a petition with the National Labor Relations Board to get a restraining order forcing non-striking construction workers back on the job at the school.

Picketers were outside the school Friday afternoon.

According to the District 203 superintendent, non-striking workers are choosing not to work on the project while the striking unions are out.

The district hopes to file their request on Tuesday.
