Strike cancels school Wed. in Kankakee district

Wednesday, January 20, 2010

There will be no classes again Wednesday for students of Kankakee School District 111 because of a teachers strike.

Talks with a federal mediator broke off after four hours Tuesday, and so far, no new talks have been scheduled.

Union members walked picket lines Tuesday after rejecting a tentative agreement last month.

The strike affects more than 5,000 students.
