NEW BERLIN, Ill. (WCIA) — A teacher’s union is celebrating a legal victory.
The New Berlin School District reached a settlement agreement with members just last week. Last year, the union took a no-confidence vote in Superintendent Adam Ehrman.
After that, union leaders said the board and Ehrman retaliated. Union President Joe Kindred was fired. He had been a 15-year employee and basketball coach.
The Illinois Education Association filed an unfair labor practice. On Monday, the school board voted unanimously on a settlement agreement with Kindred. The details of that agreement have not been disclosed.
