On September 28, 2016 the Chicago Teachers Union announced their plan to strike on October 11 if a deal isn’t reached. 95% of CTU members are in agreement of the pending strike. However, a group of parents who are members of Chicago Parent Congress doesn’t support CTU’s decision.
“I think there are some other alternatives or options available and I don’t think that a strike is one of them”, said Tanesha Peeples.
