Chicago Teachers' Strike Enters Third Day

Union says agreement is miles away


The public teachers strike that has halted classwork and upset family routines across the country's third largest city ground into a third day Wednesday with some movement reported by union and school board negotiators but no sign of an imminent deal.

Union leaders said they will meet Wednesday morning to review a new, comprehensive proposal from school board negotiators that addresses all the issues still on the table. The board has requested either a written response or a comprehensive counterproposal from the union.
