Chicago Teachers Set Strike Date

The Chicago Teachers Union this evening voted to strike on Monday, Sept. 10, the earliest day possible after filing a 10-day strike notice Wednesday and saying they would remain at the neogotiating table until an agreement was reached. 

Sept. 10 is the first day of the second week of school for most Chicago Public Schools students.

Contract negotiations between the union and Chicago Public Schools will continue through the week and likely the weekend, meaning a strike still could be averted.
