Letter: Objectivity for District 86 teacher negotiations

Thank you Chicago Tribune for the editorial reminder that the School Board works for property owners and parents, not the teachers’ union.

Today, both public and private sector employees would appreciate a 1.7 percent raise in pay, and that means an increase in take-home pay. Common sense still rules over convoluted logic expressed through the National Education Association by Hinsdale District 86 teachers’ union spokesman Mike Palmquist’s claim that under the board’s current offer, the take-home pay of nearly every teacher would be reduced.

Such delusional reasoning, given an average 2012 teacher salary $105,494, given a teacher strike vote when offered 1.7 percent, serves only to awaken the sleeping silent majority of voters in District 86.
