Chicago Teacher’s Strike Rolls On

Posted by wlpo on September 17, 2012

CHICAGO (AP) – Chicago teachers are picketing at schools citywide for the sixth school day as they read over the latest contract offer from the district.

Many wearing red shirts were flipping through summaries of the deal this morning outside various
schools. Negotiators spent the week working out the details, but union delegates decided to take more time to read through the offer.

It’s been frustrating for parent Erica Weiss who was dropping off her 6-year-old daughter at one elementary school. Weiss says her daughter is missing out and it’s inconvenient to bring her to another school and arrange for her care when she’d normally be at after-school activities.
