ENGLEWOOD – Teachers at Englewood on the Palisades Charter School have been protesting against having to work without a contract, according to union president Janine Ellis.

The previous contract expired at the end of the 2014-2015 school year.

“There’s low morale, the pension costs have gone up, the cost of living has gone up,” Ellis said. “It’s been tougher on us financially.”
