The Chicago Teachers Union House of Delegates has voted to suspend the strike, which has gone on for seven days. The approximately 800-person delegation voted "overwhelmingly" to suspend the strike. Classes are set to resume tomorrow.
Check back with Progress Illinois for more on this developing story.
UPDATE 1 (6:01 p.m.): The vote to suspend the strike was about 90 percent in favor of ending the walkout. CTU President Karen Lewis says the union got their way on the teacher evaluation issue, adding that overall they scored a victory in the national education reform fight. CTU members will spend the next two weeks reviewing and voting on the deal, which Lewis expects to pass amongst rank-and-file teachers.
After such a contentious battle with CPS and Mayor Rahm Emanuel, Lewis adds that the relationship between the parties is strained, saying "next week there will be something else." The CTU President says the injunction filed by CPS was not a factor in the delegation's decision to end the strike.
