Chicago Teachers Union President Karen Lewis says negotiators have a framework to end a five-day public schools strike, but members won't receive written details until Sunday.

Lewis spoke Friday afternoon, saying union delegates who would vote to suspend the strike won't be told what the framework is until Sunday, when they also can see the completed language. Lewis reiterated that there is no contract yet with Chicago Public Schools and she says the "strike is not suspended." But the union president says she is still hoping students will be in class on Monday.

The nearly 800-member House of Delegates could vote to suspend the strike, but not to approve the contract. Union members would vote on that later.

Teachers have been on strike since Monday leaving about 350,000 students idle.
