Hello and welcome to Fox News First. Here’s what you need to know to start your day

Chicago schools to reopen after union-city deal reaches
Lori E. Lightfoot, the mayor of Chicago, announced on Twitter Monday evening that children in the city’s public schools will be able to return to class on Wednesday after teachers’ union leaders approved a plan with the district.

“After a productive day at the bargaining table, I am happy to announce that CTU will end its work stoppage,” the mayor tweeted. “CPS [Chicago Public Schools] put an excellent proposal on the table which both negotiating teams discussed in detail today. “

Public discord between the teachers’ union and the city continued until hours before the deal was announced. Jesse Sharkey, president of the teachers’ union, told the Chicago Sun-Times that Lightfooot “is relentless, but she is relentlessly stupid, relentlessly stubborn.”

The deal, which would have students in class on Wednesday and teachers a day earlier, still requires approval from the union’s 25,000 full members, according to the union. The union did not immediately respond to an email from Fox News. CLICK HERE TO LEARN MORE ABOUT OUR TOP STORY.
