On October 11, Chicago public school teachers may go on strike for the second time in four years, not including an illegal one-day strike last Spring. Eighty-seven percent of union members voted to support the strike but the vote was criticized for intimidating teachers who might be opposed to the planned walkout.
Pro-union politicians, including Alderman Howard Brookins and State Representative LaShawn Ford have publicly discouraged a strike because of the inconvenience to parents, the learning loss for children and concerns for student safety.
