It looks like 350,000 Chicago Public Schools students will get a full week off. The Chicago Teachers Union said in a press release this afternoon that there will be no classes Friday as the CTU House of Delegates will meet at 2 p.m. tomorrow. Presumably, the meeting could result in the House of Delegates approving a new contract and calling off the strike.
However, CTU would only say that "the Bargaining Team will update leadership on new developments."
Karen Lewis says in a statement that, "We've made progress in some areas, but still we have a way to go."
Also, CTU announced in the release that they are holding a rally noon Saturday at Union Park.
Continue to check back with PI for more on the CTU strike.
