No strike for Chicago teachers
CHICAGO - The Chicago Teachers Union says its members will not be going on strike over contract negotiations with the nation's third-largest school district.
The union had set Tuesday as a strike date, but both sides have reached a tentative agreement.
The decision averts the second major strike for Chicago teachers since 2012. The district's nearly 400,000 students will be in class today.
