Charter School Teachers Picket Ahead Of Possible Strike

One of Chicago’s largest charter school networks may go on strike next week.

Staff at the UNO Charter School Network, commonly referred to as UCSN, voted last week to authorize a strike Oct. 19 if they don’t reach a tentative contract agreement first.

No charter school in the country has had a teachers’ strike since the publicly-funded, privately-run schools were created in the 1990s.
