Agreement Reached, 5 of 11 Days Lost to be Made Up From Chicago Teachers’ Strike

CHICAGO (AP) — The Chicago Teachers Union says it has reached agreement with the nation’s third-largest school district to make up five of 11 school days lost during the teachers strike.

The union and city officials announced Thursday that the strike has ended and that classes will resume Friday.

CTU tweeted that members have agreed to “make up five days of student instruction.” The city has provided no further detail.

The union’s delegates voted Wednesday night to accept a tentative agreement that includes pay raises over a five-year contract.

But they said they wouldn’t end the strike unless the mayor committed to making up some of the lost days.

Mayor Lori Lightfoot said she would not respond to a “unilateral demand” but was open to negotiations.
