NIU And China: The Case Of BTBU

Apr 18, 2016

Major universities often have working relationships with their foreign counterparts.  While these often lead to collaboration and exchanges of students and faculty, it takes something extra to get those relationships started and keep them going.

“The clock has started” for a potential Chicago Teacher’s Union strike. That’s according to union president Karen Lewis.

The countdown to the possible strike began after the union rejected the recommendation of a neutral arbitrator to accept a contract offer from the nation's third-largest school system.

The union says the earliest a strike could begin is May 16, about a month before the last day of school. It says it also could strike in September, when school resumes for about 400-thousand students.
