Chicago Teachers Union Authorizes Strike

Chicago – The Chicago Teachers Union is set to announce it has more than enough votes to authorize a teachers strike, according to local news reports.

Chicago Teachers Union officials revealed Monday that nearly 90 percent of their members have authorized a strike — giving them the largest such mandate in the union’s history.

The teachers and Chicago Public Schools are working toward new contract talks. Union officials have said they called the vote to give them more leverage in talks and not because they were seeking an immediate strike. Any possible strike called by teachers would not happen until the fall.
