The Chicago Teachers Union’s House of Delegates will hold a meeting next week to review the proposed four-year contract deal.

About 800 delegates are scheduled to meet Oct. 19 to discuss the tentative agreement, reached earlier this week, which averted the second teachers’ strike in four years.

If the delegates like the agreement, they would recommend it to the full membership for a vote, according to the union. Delegates also are tasked with setting a referendum in which the full voting membership of about 25,000 would ratify the agreement as their contract for the next three years.

Only the members can vote the agreement down.

In a news release, the union said it would announce the results of the delegates’ review about 6 p.m. on Oct. 19.
