Chicago Teachers Have Framework for Agreement

Students come out to support Chicago teachers.

The Chicago Tribune reports there is a framework for a deal between Chicago Teachers Union (CTU) Local 1 and the Chicago Public Schools.

The Tribune spoke to CTU attorney Robert Bloch, who said:

I’m pleased to report that the talks today were very productive....We are still continuing to work out the details of the contract, but we are hopeful that we will have a complete agreement to present to the union’s House of Delegates by Sunday.

Teachers are expected to review the proposal this weekend.

Take a moment to look at some snapshots of the solidarity actions students, working families and unions took to support the Chicago teachers who were forced on strike to gain a contract that provides students with the education they deserve.
