Chicago Teachers Vote To Suspend Strike

Delegates for striking Chicago Public Schools teachers voted overwhelmingly Tuesday to suspend their nine-day strike, meaning classes will resume Wednesday, according to delegates who attended a union meeting.
About 800 delegates from the teachers union gathered at midafternoon to vote on whether to suspend the walkout, which began September 10.
The vote came a day after school officials asked a judge to declare the strike illegal and order the teachers back to work. A Cook County judge had scheduled a hearing on that request Wednesday.
