Teachers have voted to strike against the third-largest U.S. public school district.

Chicago teachers have voted to authorize their union to launch a strike against the third-largest U.S. public school district.

A tally of ballots showed that 94 percent of about 25,000 dues-paying members of the Chicago Teachers Union supported giving their leaders the discretion to call a strike.

A walkout would disrupt classes for about 360,000 Chicago students in kindergarten through high school, following a wave of teacher strikes across the country over wages and education funding over the past two years, including a week-long strike in Los Angeles in January.
