CHICAGO -- The Chicago Teachers' Union held a news conference Monday to discuss the district's latest contract proposal and a possible strike.
CTU President Karen Lewis said the contract does not benefit teachers.
The CTU rejected an independent fact-finder's recommendation aimed at resolving the contract dispute with Chicago Public Schools.
Chicago Public Schools CEO Forrest Claypool also held a news conference today urging teachers to concentrate on reaching a final deal rather than starting the clock on a possible strike.
A strike could begin as early as May 16 or in the Fall.
