GALLERY: The CPS strike so far

Now in its 10th day, the 2019 Chicago Public Schools strike has entered historical territory — as of Monday, this is officially the longest public school strike in Chicago since 1987.  While the Service Employees International Union Local 73 reached a deal with the city late Sunday, the Chicago Teachers Union has yet to do so, leaving classes canceled for the 10th day Wednesday.  After marathon talks over the weekend, CTU and the city remained locked in a stalemate.  Organized protests continued Tuesday, and talks between CTU and the city continued Wednesday.

While the story continues to develop, here’s a look at the strike so far:
