It's in the air. You can smell and taste it. It's not pleasant. Union bosses and city officials struck a deal. A previous article headlined Capitulation in Chicago? 

Final details aren't known, but bet on it. It's baked in the cake. By the time this article circulates, it may be official. It practically is now.

Unions in Chicago and across America ill represented rank-and-file members for decades. Corporate and government negotiators know it. Beating labor means staying hardline and waiting them out. They'll cave like they always do.

Months of discussions produced stalemate. On September 10, teachers walked out. Board of Education (BoE) and Chicago Public Schools (CPS) officials spurned them on core issues. Resolving them in five days reveals sellout. 

Saving public education is key. It's a fundamental right. It's on the chopping block for elimination. Commodifying it as another business profit center is planned.
