New Talks Scheduled in Harlem Strike

Almost 8,000 students have been idled for more than a week by the teachers strike in the northern Illinois district, which covers several communities near Rockford.

The sides are resuming negotiations after not meeting Monday or Sunday. The main sticking point is salary.

Union negotiator Barbara Abrahamson says another round of talks could be beneficial, and school board President Sandi Johnson says she hopes the meeting will promote some new discussion.
