RLAS-116 Board of Education and the Education Association of Round Lake Announce Collective Bargaining Agreement 4-Year Contract Approved

Round Lake Area Schools CUSD #116 Board of Education and the Education Association of Round Lake Announce Collective Bargaining Agreement

The Round Lake Area Schools CUSD #116 Board of Education (“Board”) is pleased to announce that the District and the Education Association of Round Lake (“EARL”) have reached a four-year collective bargaining agreement. The current agreement will expire June 30, 2017. Conversations about a contract rollover began in October 2016. The EARL membership ratified the contract (624 Yes, 31 No) on Thursday, January 19, 2017, followed by the Board’s approval (6 Yes, 0 No) of the agreement at their February 6, 2017 Board meeting.

EARL represents approximately 900 employees, including bus drivers, custodians, health services, maintenance, mechanics, secretaries, teacher aides, and teachers.

The agreement is a rollover from the current contract and includes an increase to the salary schedules resulting in an average increase of 1.9% per year on all salary schedule amounts. In comparison, the current 2014-2017 contract provided an average increase of 0.66% per year.  Teachers and support staff will therefore see about a 4% increase each year over the next 4 years, which is comprised of step and salary increases.

The new agreement will be posted to the District website by Friday, February 17, 2017.

If you have questions about this information, please contact Heather Bennett, Public Relations Officer at
847-270-9007.
