CTU Sets Oct. 11 Strike Date - News With Mary DixonChicago Public Schools and the Chicago Teachers Union have fewer than two weeks to work out a new contract ... or teachers will walk off the job. The CTU's House of Delegates has voted to set an October 11th strike date. Teachers have been working without a contract for more than a year and are arguing against pension givebacks and classroom cuts ... UPDATE: The outbound Eisenhower was shutdown after a fatal shooting near Laramie ... A second night of protests in a San Diego suburb ... where police shot and killed a black man who turned out to be holding an e-cigarette ... Dozens of protesters greeted Donald Trump on the Northwest Side and in Bolingbrook ... Hillary Clinton will be at the Hyatt downtown for a fundraiser today ... Congress has approved a temporary spending bill to keep the government running ... and has over-ridden President Obama's veto of a bill that allows 9-11 families to sue Saudi Arabia ... The Cubs lost to the Pirates, but who cares? They've re-signed Theo, Jed and Jason! And the White Sox beat the Rays, but who cares? They reportedly want to re-sign Robin Ventura ...
