Karen Lewis announced that she will run for reelection as president of the Chicago Teachers Union Sunday morning.

Her "core" team will also be running again vice president Jesse Sharkey, recording secretary Michael Brunson and financial secretary Kristine Mayle.

Lewis led a seven-day strike in September 2012 which resulted in new contract rights for teachers.

The CTU elections will be held on May 17.
