Charter school teachers prepare to strike

in These Times - For the third time in eight months, Chicago charter school teachers are on the verge of going on strike.After a year of negotiations with management for their first contract since unionizing last spring, close to 50 teachers, paraprofessionals and teacher assistants at Passages Charter School are prepared to walk off the job Thursday morning if an agreement is not reached. It would be the first time teachers at a U.S. charter school ever went on strike.
