The teachers plan to hold an indoor rally and then march through the city Monday afternoon but say they’re not expecting any negotiations before then.

Meanwhile, the mayor and the CEO of Chicago Public Schools say they remain committed to getting a deal done.

Both sides met over the weekend for another round of negotiations and agreed some progress was made.

Union laters said over the weekend it was surprisingly sober on the other side of the table, especially after the city told the union on Friday it has already issued a final contract offer, which includes a 16% total raise over a five-year contract.

“It’s still a proposal that would provide justice for our students and for our teachers and schools, but it’s a path that she can follow in order to get a settlement, a settlement we all want,” said CTU President Jesse Sharkey.

Union leaders say the ball is now in the city’s court.
