CHICAGO -- Chicago teachers will not strike - for now.
The union's House of Delegates met Wednesday and leaders say there was no vote.
Instead, they focused on their proposal for raising $500 million in revenue for the schools, by raising several taxes, including rideshare and gas.
They've asked members to reach out to legislators, and help push it through.
CTU had been considering an end of year strike but concerns about whether the union would be able to get the support of parents so close to the end of the school year had the union rethinking its plans.
Teachers were also concerned about losing their health insurance, as well as their last paycheck before the long summer break.
On top of that, union officials want to give a school funding bill that is pending in Springfield a chance to play out.
