Chicago teachers uncomfortable with a tentative contract offer decided Sunday to remain on strike, insisting they need more time before deciding whether to end an acrimonious standoff with Mayor Rahm Emanuel.
Teachers continued to rally after CTU President Karen Lewis said she was “tired of the lies and the name calling.”
As of 5:00 p.m. no vote has been reported; a vote was expected at 3:00 p.m. Sunday evening it was announced that there will be no school Monday.
If the teachers get a raise, the stress on the budget will mean that thousands of teachers will be laid off, under-enrolled and underperforming schools will be closed, and property taxes will increase in Chicago.
Thousands of striking Chicago public school teachers packed a city park Saturday in a show of force as union leaders and the district tried to work out the details of a tentative agreement that would end a week-long walkout.
