Strike Strike Strike
The Chicago Teachers Union says internal polling shows there is support for a strike if contract talks with Chicago Public Schools break down.
A new state law requires the union to get approval from 75 percent of its members before a strike, leading many to question if the union could muster support for a walkout.
CTU spokeswoman Stephanie Gadlin said members at several schools were polled.
"The preliminary results indicate that if a strike vote were held today, teachers in those schools would vote unanimously for a walkout," Gadlin said.
