Need to Know News: Chicago teachers go on strike; Member of Obama motorcade dies after accident

Each day, we here at "Piers Morgan Tonight" put together the news you need to know – from what happened last night to what will happen today.

For September 10, 2012 – Chicago teachers strike leaves 400,000 students out of school, police motorcyclist in presidential motorcade dies after Florida accident and Serena Williams wins U.S. Open final thriller...

Chicago teachers strike leaves 400,000 students out of school: "Almost 30,000 teachers and support staff are off the job after their union and school officials failed to reach a contract agreement despite 10 months of negotiations. The walkout is Chicago's first teacher strike in 25 years."

Police motorcyclist in presidential motorcade dies after Florida accident: "A police motorcyclist in President Barack Obama's motorcade died Sunday in Florida following a serious highway accident, police and the top White House spokesman said."

Congress has little motivation for compromise before election: "After a five-week summer recess, Congress returns to a long list of unfinished business, but with 57 left days before Election Day, it's likely it will tackle only the bare minimum in its short fall session."

Treasury flash crash could become reality: "As with stocks, the fear is that flash crashes could cause sharp plunges in Treasury prices. That would lead to soaring yields, from all-time lows below 1.5%, to as high as 4%."

Serena Williams wins U.S. Open final thriller: "Serena Williams battled back from the brink of defeat to claim her 15th grand slam title and win the U.S. Open for the fourth time with a 6-2 2-6 7-5 victory over world No. 1 Victoria Azarenka on Sunday."
