Tentative Contract Agreement at RVC

A labor dispute at a community college in northern Illinois could be nearing an end.  A tentative contract agreement has been reached between Rock Valley College and its faculty union. 

Details of the agreement haven't been released.  The faculty will have seven days to review the offer, before taking a vote.  The contract also needs approval from the Board of Trustees.  Talks had dragged on for several months, with health insurance contributions serving as a key sticking point.  The impasse forced the union to file its intent to strike.
