President’s Letter | Not a moment, but a movement

Our fight brought desperately needed resources and supports to CPS classrooms, new class size provisions, puts a nurse and social worker in every school, and for the first time, ensures a living wage for the mostly Black and Brown PSRPs women who are the backbone of our school communities.

What’s in the Contract?

Be sure to check the back side of the pdf for a quick overview of class size provisions. This powerful new language forces CPS to hold to upper limits of class size that the district has routinely violated.

Make your contract count!

Meeting the challenge of organizing for strong contract enforcement in each school is at the heart of our union power.

Climate catastrophe

On September 20, millions of young people staged a worldwide strike to demand government action on climate change.

Organizing to build a more perfect union

Despite the billions of dollars spent on propaganda by the enemies of public education and unions, the CTU continues to galvanize thousands across Chicago and inspire voices across the country to resist their destructive programs. As the third-largest educators’ local in the U.S., and as leading voices of truth and justice, we have the opportunity to build a transformative union that protects its members and advocates for the lives that rely upon our courage and love.

Passages strong!

CTU charter educator strike wins all major contract demands after just four days.

An ERSB history

The history of the fight for an elected representative school board in Chicago.

‘If only we were bulletproof’

Ask a room full of eighth graders what they like about their Back of the Yards neighborhood and you’ll get a wide-ranging cascade of answers. But if you ask what they don’t like, a single topic will echo time and again: gun violence.
