President Lewis and representatives of the Board of Education sign the tentative agreement at about 11:50 p.m. on October 10, 2016.

Here is a one-page summary of the tentative agreement reached before midnight on October 10. You can also read brief answers to questions we are hearing about the Step Increases and Retirement Incentive in the tentative agreement.

The complete text of the offer made in January 2016 includes most of the changes in the new tentative agreement, but does not include some final provisions agreed to in the final negotiations.

A shorter document contains, additional elements of the final tentative agreement as signed by the two sides.

A tentative agreement is not a final contract. Every active member of the Chicago Teachers Union will have an opportunity to review and vote on the agreement before a contract is ratified.

Officers will hold a series of meetings to address members’ questions and concerns about the tentative agreement from Monday through Wednesday, October 24–26 across the city.
