Jesse Sharkey said ( about Lori Lightfoot ) : “One thing we learned is that Lori Lightfoot is prone to saying sort of unwise, provocative things in public, which then put her in a corner in negotiations she’s subsequently required to back out of,” “She said that class size and staffing didn’t belong in a labor contract. Class size and staffing are in a labor contract. She said that she wouldn’t put any more money into the labor contract. Well, she put a lot more money into the labor contract. She said she wouldn’t make up any school days. This is a pattern” External link

Jesse Sharkey said : “The question that everyone wants to know is, are we ending the strike and returning to work?” “And the answer to that is, we want to, but there needs to be a discussion about making up some of the instruction time that was lost. I understand that it’s going to be difficult for the mayor and for the people who run the schools to fit 11 instructional days back into the school year. But our strong feeling is that we want to discuss it. It can’t be zero [days]. It can’t be zero. That’s not an acceptable number to us” External link
