President’s message: We need a mayor who keeps his word

As workers and residents of Chicago, who are raising our children and investing in the common good, we are deeply invested in our school communities, our neighborhoods and the civic life of our city. And that means we must be deeply engaged in the upcoming election: November’s midterm election, the 2023 Mayoral Race — where our brother Brandon Johnson is running to defeat Mayor Lori Lightfoot — and the first election of the Chicago School Board. 

On Nov. 8, vote like your rights depend on it — because they do

Your votes in this fall’s general election will be essential to securing your rights. Voting YES for the Workers’ Rights Amendment to the Illinois Constitution — the first item at the top of the ballot — is critical. Far right billionaires are spending millions to defeat the amendment — and the race is tightening, which is why on Nov. 8 every vote counts.

How we built PPC power at Drummond

Our schools’ democratic committees, like the Professional Problems Committee (PPC), are powerful tools to address contract issues. But, as members at Drummond Montessori learned, they can also help empower and unify members.

Celebrating our member leaders

This month, we’re featuring several dynamic member leaders: CTU organizer and PSRP for life Lashawn Wallace, McKay delegate Moselean Parker, CTU Field Rep Kathy Murray, and North Grand High School teacher Mueze Bawany.
