"The district has consistently worked with WCB on distance learning efforts and other topics of great importance during the COVID-19 pandemic," the school district said in a statement. "We are discouraged that the union is trying to circumvent our collective duty to serve and educate hundreds of thousands of students and families during this emergency." District officials say the new state rules do not "replace" existing agreements with the union. They also say that it is the CEO who is responsible for approving the distance learning plan, not the union. Jesse Sharkey, president of the WCB, said the union was not calling for the collective agreement to reopen. It`s just a matter of having a say in potential distance learning plans and reopening plans. "It`s not going to happen," Lightfoot said Monday. "Of course, as always, CPS is in regular dialogue with the WCB [and] they will continue to engage regularly with the WCB. We reached an agreement last fall. We will not reopen the collective agreement. "It`s not going to be the same as last fall," he says, "so we have to hammer something out of it and find a way for the people who go into the buildings every day.

On Thursday, October 17, 2019, teachers entered early in the morning picket lines, and the WCB said it planned to resume negotiations with the city at Malcolm X College. Later in the afternoon, cpS announced that classes had been cancelled for the next day due to a lack of predictable agreement in the near function, despite the progress of negotiations. On Friday, October 18, 2019, teachers continued the second day of strike, meaning that students attended school for two days (Tuesday and Wednesday) of the five days from October 14 to 18 (cpS students did not attend school on Monday due to compliance with Columbus Day).
