Together, with students, families, and workers in our school communities, we create change across our city and guide the future.
Together, our union fights to win.
Campaigns and Initiatives
We have fought for—and won—greater special education funding. But under remote learning we have to fight unreasonable and impossible mandates. We can’t let CPS tie up kids’ special education services in red tape. Take action now.
CPS’s School Quality Rating Policy (SQRP) is racist, punitive and superficial.
Safety and rights for students and families.
Educators deserve a respectful workplace.
Early Childhood PSRP Staffing
Young learners need teacher aides and other staff to thrive.
You are the Union. There are many ways you can help make the schools our students deserve a reality. Wear red on Fridays. Pass out educational materials to parents and community members. Join a CTU committee. Speak up in your religious or civic community. Union staff will provide you with opportunities.
Play your part in bringing colleagues together to make your school strong. Stand up for what’s right in your school’s Local School Council (LSC), your Professional Problems Committee (PPC), or your Professional Personnel Leadership Committee (PPLC). Lead your colleagues’ efforts as a school delegate. Union staff will have your back the whole way. The resources here will help.
