Chicago teachers to strike Monday

By NBC Chicago and Reuters - September 9 2012

For the first time in 25 years, teachers in the Chicago school system will walk off the job Monday after failing to reach a contract deal with district officials, NBC Chicago reported.

Chicago Teachers Union President Karen Lewis announced late Sunday night that negotiations with the school board have ended without an agreement. “We have failed to reach an agreement that will prevent a labor strike,” she said at a news conference.

Earlier, Chicago School Board President David Vitale said that more than 20 offers had been made to teachers throughout the last four days in hopes of preventing a strike, NBC Chicago reported.

A strike in the third-largest school district in the nation would set up a historic confrontation between Mayor Rahm Emanuel, President Barack Obama's former top White House aide, and organized labor in the president's home city.
