Union Warns CPS Teachers to Prepare for Strike

CHICAGO -- Chicago Teachers Union leaders are warning teachers to prepare for a strike.

CTU is telling members to start saving as much as 25 percent of each paycheck to prepare for a possible protracted work stoppage.

New schools chief Forrest Claypool said that if Springfield does not bail out CPS, he may have to layoff teachers next semester.

“We will be meeting with our principals sometime in December to begin planning for reduced budgets in the Spring second semester,” Claypool said. “Those would be executed around February 1st at the beginning of the second semester which is February 8th.”
