MOUNT OLIVE, Ill. (KSDK) – It's Day 2 on the picket line for teachers in the Mount Olive School District, and there's no end in sight at the moment.
Union members and administrators met behind closed doors Monday night into the early morning hours of Tuesday to try to find a compromise; however, it seems that the two sides are far from the middle, according to union representative Marcia Schulte.
The strike began Monday morning with 39 teachers walking a picket line.
There's no other meeting scheduled until next week, and no school or activities will be held during the strike.
Parents with students between kindergarten and 6th grade can drop off their child for a daycare attended by administrators and other staff members of the district.
