Chicago teachers union calls meeting of delegates, cautions no deal yetThe Chicago Teachers Union summoned hundreds of its leaders for a Tuesday evening update on a nine-day-old strike but said negotiators had not yet reached a tentative deal to end the walkout in the third-largest school district in the United States. Chicago’s 25,000 public school teachers want a pay increase along with smaller class sizes and more support staff. Mayor Lori Lightfoot said she and Chicago Public Schools Chief Executive Officer Janice Jackson met with union leadership for more than three hours on Tuesday, but both sides did not come to a resolution.
