Chicago students and teachers will be in class this morning.

 

Late Monday night/early Tuesday morning the news came from the SEIU offices where CPS and the Chicago Teachers Union were collective bargaining.

A deal had been reached.

The tentative agreement will be presented to the CTU House of Delegates for a vote. Meanwhile teachers and students are where they should be on the Tuesday after Columbus Day (Indigenous People’s Day).

Congratulations to the negotiators and leadership of the CTU.

Language in the contract continues the 7% pension pickup for current members of the bargaining unit.

Salary increases in the final two years of the contract total 4.5% over step and lane movement.

Chicago teachers have been without a contract for over a year.
