The St. Louis School Board has ignored a teacher’s union threat and has voted to get rid of hundreds of non-teaching jobs. The teachers’ union had threatened to keep schools from opening if the plans to layoff 14-hundred workers were approved. The Janitor’s union has struck a deal that could keep many custodians on the job. Ninety adminsitrators, 118 secretaries, 99 support workers, 102 mechanics and 164 teacher’s aides are losing jobs, though.
