CHICAGO - Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel said on Sunday he will seek a court order to end a week-long strike by 29,000 public school teachers and staff after union leaders decided to continue the strike and consult rank-and-file members on a proposed deal.

"I will not stand by while the children of Chicago are played as pawns in an internal dispute within a union. This was a strike of choice, and is now a delay of choice, that is wrong for our children," Emanuel said in a statement.

"I have instructed the City's Corporation Counsel to work with the general counsel of Chicago Public Schools to file an injunction in circuit court to immediately end this strike and get our children back in the classroom," Emanuel said.
