The union says it is opening a strike office to distribute picket signs and other materials to teachers, parents and others in preparation for a Monday walk-out. The office also would be the base for any union activity during a strike.

If teachers walk off the job Monday, it would be the first teachers strike in Chicago in 25 years.
