Chicago Teachers Given Ultimatum

Don't like that 28 percent could be fired for poor performance


Chicago Teachers' Union representatives say that school district officials have issued them an ultimatum with regards to their demands, according to ABC News. The strike is entering its third day as talks are set to resume at 11:00 a.m. today, Central time.

At the end of Tuesday's talks, David Vitale, the president of the Chicago Board of Education told reporters that his side had presented a written proposal to the CTU and would not be returning to the table until the teachers' union (which is which one poll found is supported by 47 percent of Chicago voters) had issued a written response of its own.
