Negotiators for Chicago's teachers union and school board plan to resume tense contract talks at 11 a.m. Sunday after reporting some progress on Saturday.

The teachers have set a midnight Sunday deadline to call off the city's first teachers' strike in 25 years. Pay raises and job security are among their top concerns.

A strike would cause massive disruptions in the nation's third-largest school district.
