Teachers in Chicago (Illinois state) vowed to continue their strike on Friday, October 25, following a breakdown in negotiations. The strike has been ongoing for one week in America's third-largest school district. Teachers seek to negotiate pay, benefits, class sizes, and teacher preparation time. Additional related protests are likely throughout Chicago, notably outside schools. Classes have again been canceled for the district's 300,000 students.
Associated transportation disruptions are to be expected in the vicinity of all protests.
An estimated 25,000 teachers are on strike in the district, since October 17.
Individuals in Chicago are advised to monitor developments to the situation and allow additional time to travel near demonstration sites.
