CTU Bilingual Committee works to ensure English learners are more than an afterthought

Our 2019 strike won historic improvements in bilingual education. It creates a tuition reimbursement for earning a bilingual or ESL endorsement and includes new professional development for ELL teachers. It allocates positions based on the number of students needing services and protects bilingual educators from being pulled for other tasks, such as lunch duty classroom coverage. These wins can help us support our bilingual students but only if we know how to enforce them.

“Reparations Won” in the Classroom

Against the Current Magazine interviewed CTU members Will Weaver and Lauren Bianchi about their experience in implementing the Reparations Won curriculum.

Class Size grievance win nets $61K for ASPIRA charter teachers

Eleven members at ASPIRA Business and Finance High School (ABF) will receive compensation for class size violations totaling $61,000. That’s thanks to a settlement of two outstanding grievances defending important class size limits won in their 2018 contract.

Building safety through solidarity

Our union fought for months to land enforceable safety guardrails, because we know they work to protect students and staff from COVID-19. Now, members are using those tools to enforce safety in our buildings.
