CHICAGO -- The clock has started on a potential Chicago teachers strike.

The Chicago Teachers Union rejected the findings of the independent fact finder after his proposal was similar to the one the teachers union rejected back in January.

By law CTU must wait 30 days after rejecting the fact finder's report, then give CPS a 10-day notice before going out on strike.

The two sides have been at odds over a contact. The earliest teachers could strike is mid-May, however they may wait until the beginning of the next school year.

There are several issues the two sides can't agree on; a few include pay and pension contributions.
