My Movement

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

Election 2020

Voting is one important lever of change. When combined with direct action, strikes, organizing and social protest it is transformational. Cast your ballot between now and November 3 to take an important step in fighting for the funding, the policies and the leadership that our schools deserve.

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.

Sanctuary Schools

Students and their families need to feel safe and secure in our schools. That’s what sanctuary means.

Special Education

Demand that CPS fill special education vacancies with teachers who are displaced and rescind their funding cuts.


CPS’s School Quality Rating Policy (SQRP) is racist, punitive and superficial.

Get Involved

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.

Organizing Tools

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.
