The teachers union has scheduled a strike for Thursday at the Zion-Benton Township High School District 126.

The union represents about 280 teachers and the north suburban district has 2,800 students.

A mediation session was scheduled to start Wednesday night. Union leaders say, if it fails, their members will be on the picket line Thursday morning.

The union says the board has refused to return to talks.

The board claims the union hasn't shared its proposals for a settlement.
