Classes are suspended by the CPS until new negotiations.

Parents sue Thursday against the Chicago Teachers Union to end an illegal strike. Therefore, as of Wednesday, Public School students do not attend classes.
Due to the increase in covid-19 cases due to the omicron variant, the Chicago Teachers Union voted against the face-to-face classes, so the CPS canceled the classes.
Remote classes is the solution that teachers suggest, in order to avoid more infections, as well as better security measures in the district.
On Friday, classes were suspended by the CPS until further negotiations.
Liberty Justice Center and several parents filed the complaint. Arguing that such a strike is illegal under Illinois law and claiming violation of the union's contract.
Jeffrey Schwad, lead attorney for the Liberty Justice Center said “The CTU resolution asking members not to report to work in person is a strike regardless of what CTU calls it and violates both the collective bargaining agreement with CPS and the law. Illinois ", and" CTU cannot unilaterally decide what steps should be taken to keep public schools safe, completely silencing parents' views on what is best for the health, safety, and well-being of their children.
