Emanuel urges quick resolution to teachers strike
CHICAGO (AP) — Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel is urging negotiators to come up with a new contract for the city's teachers quickly for the sake of the children.
During a news conference Monday, Emanuel said negotiations resumed at about 11:30 a.m.
Emanuel defended the Chicago Public Schools' contract offer to teachers. He says negotiators were close to agreement, but the Chicago Teachers Union chose to go on strike despite that. He called the strike "totally avoidable."
