walkout

An Illinois high school student and her father are suing a school district and several administrators alleging her civil rights were violated when she showed support for gun rights during an anti-school violence walkout.

Thousands of students at schools across Illinois participated in a national walkout to demand action on gun violence.

Chicago Teachers Union members overwhelmingly have voted to authorize their leaders to call a strike, although a final decision on a walkout would be months away.

UPDATED 10/1/15: UAW Local 2488 members have canceled a strike authorization vote against Mitsubishi Motors. This story will be updated. 

Less than two months before production is supposed to end at the Mitsubishi plant in Normal, Union officials have scheduled a strike authorization vote. That doesn't mean a walkout will happen. But, as the contract is set to expire tomorrow night, negotiators have apparently reached an impasse on issues.
