First charter school strike in nation

Socialist Worker - In a  historic first, charter school teachers in the Acero network in Chicago are prepared to strike. This will be the first strike against a charter operator in the U.S.

The strike will involve some 500 teachers and support staff and affect just under 8,000 students at the 15 Acero (formerly known as UNO) schools in the city. 96 percent of union members turned out to vote, and 98 percent of those voted to back a strike.
