A possible teacher strike at Palmer College of Chiropractic has been averted, for now. Administrators and the faculty’s union at the Davenport school have agreed to a tentative three-year contract. If approved by about 80 union members at a meeting tonight, the new agreement will replace one that ran out April 19th but has been extended several times since then.
While bargaining continued, teachers conducted informational picketing at the school the last few days. The college also advertised for replacement teachers in the event of a strike. Details of the agreement have not yet been released.
