NUEA Walk In

Naperville School District 203 teachers participated in a walk-in at their respective schools this morning. The Naperville Unit Education Association (NUEA) and District 203 have been in negotiations for a multi-year contract since January. The two main issues that have been preventing an agreement are salary and FMLA. NUEA President Dan Iverson said an agreement on family leave has been made, and now both sides will be negotiating compensation. The next mediation session is today.

Deadly Motorcycle Crash

An Aurora man died after the motorcycle he was riding crashed as it crossed over train tracks. The initial police investigation shows the motorcycle was traveling at a high speed. When it crossed over the tracks, it lost control and both riders were thrown from the motorcycle. 27-year-old Jaelen Morain was pronounced dead on the scene. The other rider was taken to a local hospital by the Naperville Fire Department with “apparent minor injuries.” The crash investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information is asked to call the Naperville Police Department’s Traffic Unit at 630-305-5477.
