Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel (D) said Sunday he would seek a court injunction to force striking public school teachers back to work, calling their action "illegal." A draft contract was finalized Saturday night, based on a framework hammered out Friday, but on Sunday the Chicago Teachers Union decided to extend the strike until at least Tuesday so rank-and-file members could weigh in on the contract. "There's no trust (of the school district and mayor)," said CTU President Karen Lewis.
