Chicago Teachers Union will vote to ratify contract in October

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (Sun-Times Media Wire) -

The deal that ended a seven-day Chicago teachers strike will be up for union approval on Tuesday, Oct. 2, Chicago Teachers Union officials said Thursday.

Packets of information, including the new contract and ballots, should arrive in schools on Friday, Sept. 28, CTU Financial Secretary Kristine Mayle said.

Due to union rules that any contract must be approved within 10 days of the suspension of a strike, "Everybody has to vote sometime on Oct. 2,'' Mayle said.

Votes on the 197-page contract will be tallied late Oct. 2 and into Oct. 3 and possibly Oct. 4, Mayle said.

A simple majority of those who vote is needed for passage, Mayle said.

The contract will replace one that expired June 30.
