IVCC Support Workers And Trustees Meet Over Pay Complaint

Aug 19, 2016

  The Illinois Valley Federation of Support Staff Local 6561, a bargaining unit with the Illinois Federation of Teachers,  filed a complaint with the state’s Educational Labor Relations Board. 

The Ottawa Times says the College owes scheduled 2% raises to support staff, but these weren’t paid as of July 1st 2015.   

Trustees didn’t provide a response during last night’s board meeting, but the two parties met behind closed doors afterward. 

Ultimately, they released a joint statement saying they need clarification from people who weren’t there Thursday.
