Chicago Mayor Going To Court To End Teachers' Strike


The Chicago teachers strike continues, and the bad blood between the union and Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel seems to be getting worse.

 

Emanuel is now going to court to force an end to what he calls an “illegal” strike.

 

He says the strike is endangering the health and safety of students, and says state law prohibits strikes over some of the key contested issues, like teacher evaluations and recall rights for laid-off teachers.

 

The union and school district reached a tentative deal over the weekend, but rank-and-file teachers want more time to review the terms.
