Teacher's strike day 10!!!

We're on day 10 (yesterday I erroneously referred to yesterday as day 8) of the teacher's strike. Here's a report from the Sun-Times:
Chicago Teachers Union leaders met Tuesday evening with the union’s governing body, its House of Delegates, to discuss the state of negotiations with Chicago Public Schools and set a plan for a possible strike-ending vote on Wednesday.

The union’s 25,000 teachers are expected to look over the city’s new offer on Wednesday morning before the House of Delegates reconvenes for a meeting and potential vote later in the day.

Meanwhile, CPS canceled classes for another day, threatening some CPS football teams’ chances to go to the playoffs. The PSAT, scheduled to be held at some schools, was also canceled.

Mayor Lori Lightfoot hand-delivered a new proposal Tuesday afternoon to the top leaders of the CTU — an offer that included $10 million more than the $500 million she had offered previously — in an effort to end the teachers strike that has roiled the city for nearly two weeks.

But the mayor and the union officials walked out of their second City Hall meeting of the day without a tentative agreement ahead of the delegates’ meeting.
Here's a post announcing the cancellation of classes this morning from CPS' ig
