The Chicago Teachers Union is suing the city’s board of education in order to stop more than a thousand teachers from being laid off.

In June, the board gave Chicago Public Schools CEO Ron Huberman the power to lay off teachers and increase class sizes to close a multi-million dollar budget hole. The lawsuit claims the board violated union agreements on seniority when pink slips were sent to tenured teachers.

Karen Lewis is the president of the teachers union.

LEWIS: We’ve been working on it for a while, because we felt that there was something patently wrong, and we were hoping to get people’s jobs back by discussing other options. But you have to approach issues like this on more than one front.

CPS officials could not be reached for comment.
