CHICAGO (WKOW)-- Chicago Teachers' Union officials are counting the ballots that its members cast on whether they will accept the proposed contract.
Last month, teachers at more than 600 schools ended a seven day strike after their union delegates voted to suspend the strike. The union's financial secretary, Kristine Mayle, says teachers voted both before and after classes on Tuesday. She says the results of the vote could be known as soon as Wednesday night or Thursday.
Teachers walked out on September 10, after months of tense contract negotiations, marking the first time the city's teachers went on strike in a quarter century.
