CHICAGO (AP) - The Chicago teachers union will continue its week-old strike in the nation's third-largest city, keeping thousands of students out of class.
The union's House of Delegates declined to vote on whether to end the strike Sunday after hearing details of a tentative contract agreement. Teachers will keep picketing Monday, one week after teachers walked out.
Union president Karen Lewis says teachers want the opportunity to continue to discuss the offer that is on the table.
She says the union's delegates will meet again Tuesday.
Mayor Rahm Emanuel and union representatives were pushing for a quick resolution as parents found alternatives for about 350,000 students. A proposed settlement was reached this weekend on sticking points that included teacher evaluations and job security.
