Tentative deal reached to end CICS teacher strike

CHICAGO (WLS) -- A strike by some Chicago International Charter School teachers is over Monday.

After nine days on the picket lines, striking educators have reached a tentative agreement with CICS management.

The Chicago Teachers Union said teachers and para-professionals are getting the pay schedules they fought for, class size reductions and guarantees on social workers and counselors.

The deal now goes to the full rank for review and a vote. The strike affected four CICS schools: Chicago-Quest, Northtown, Wrightwood and Ralph Ellison.
