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
CPS has about 300 unfilled special education positions while some special education teachers are displaced without work. Meanwhile, 50 schools are seeing special education funds and positions cut. Demand that CPS fill these vacancies with teachers who are displaced and rescind their funding cuts.
Fair Funding in Illinois
Our state doesn’t fund our schools, our pensions or our public services nearly as much as our communities need. You can vote to change that this fall.
Students and their families need to feel safe and secure in our schools. That’s what sanctuary means.
Educators deserve a respectful workplace.
CPS’s School Quality Rating Policy (SQRP) is racist, punitive and superficial.
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.
