Teachers in West Chicago Elementary School District 33 will strike Monday if an agreement with the school board is not reached, the Elementary Teachers' Association of West Chicago says.

ETAWC and the school board initiated negotiations more than 16 months ago.

They say that although some agreements have been reached, several issues remain unsettled, including class size protections, teacher appraisal, salary, health insurance and retirement provisions for employees.
