CHICAGO (WKOW) -- Negotiators talk into the early morning hours Friday, trying to end the massive teachers strike in Chicago.
School board president David Vitale says there was progress, but no deal yet. He says the two sides worked on teacher evaluations, one of the main sticking points. School officials still have to go over some financials.
Union president Karen Lewis says there were many productive conversations, but she wouldn't go into detail. Lewis hopes students can be back in class by Monday.
Talks will continue later Friday morning. There's a meeting of union delegates planned for Friday afternoon. Negotiators are hopeful a deal can be reached before then.
