Ballots are stacked at a Chicago high school Wednesday, June 6, 2012, as voting began in the Chicago Teacher Union's strike authorization vote. Chicago Teachers Union President Karen Lewis says union members don't want to disrupt the start of the next school year with a strike, but she says they feel voting to authorize one is needed to negotiate a better contract.
