Chicago Teachers union members on strike
CHICAGO: Striking Chicago Teachers Union members and their supporters march west on Roosevelt Road from Clark Street to Halsted Street in Chicago on Wednesday, Oct. 30, 2019.
Chicago’s mayor refused to grant striking teachers demands to add school days making up for two weeks of classes canceled by the walkout.
The union’s elected delegates voted Wednesday night to accept a tentative agreement with the district but said they won’t end a strike without a commitment to make up classroom time from Mayor Lori Lightfoot. (Terrence Antonio James/Chicago Tribune via AP)
