GALESBURG - Galesburg teachers have decided to strike.
The teachers union was in a meeting for nearly three and a half hours Thursday night deciding their next move.
The teachers are asking for more money, and better retirement benefits.
They say a good contract is necessary to keep quality teachers in the area.
But the district says raises just aren’t in the budget.
