(CBS) — A bargaining team for the Chicago Teachers Union unanimously rejected a contract offer from Chicago Public Schools union officials announced Monday afternoon.
The 40-member committee of educators voted on what was described as a serious offer Monday. The union says it rejected the offer, citing the district’s fiscal instability reductions in education quality and does not address revenue concerns. A yes vote would have sent the offer to the union’s House of Delegates for approval.
Dr. Monique Redeaux-Smith, a member of the teacher’s bargaining team, says the contract didn’t go far enough.
“We are not convinced that they will make good on their promises set forth in this proposal that are very vague and unclear,” she said.
