No school in Cahokia; teachers on strike
(2007-09-17)
(St. Louis Public Radio) - There's no school today (Monday) for students in the Cahokia School District because teachers there have gone on strike.

Midnight was the teachers' union deadline for reaching a deal; the two sides are still apart on pay raises.

The union offered a 3.5% pay raise plus step increases. But School Board President Richard Sauget Jr. said Sunday the district had reaffirmed its original offer of 2.25% increases.
