Whatever we do, we’ll do it together. You have a part to play.
All CTU members and supporters can show up and be heard at our events. CTU educators in the schools have a special role to play in uniting with coworkers and getting everyone strike ready. Whether we need to strike or not, our readiness shows the Board that, together, we’ll fight to win.
Our Union is powerful if we are united and organized.
Build Contract Action Teams, reach out to parents and community members, and wear red together every Friday. If we get strike ready, we can win a contract that will improve our schools and our lives.
The timeline below illuminates the path we’re taking, guided by two motivations:
- Union members in the schools drive the priorities of the campaign.
- We meet our legal obligations under the infamous Section 4.5 of the Illinois Educational Labor Relations Act (IELRA).
Follow the timeline see where we are and where we’re going as we lead up to a potential strike and/or the resolution we’re seeking in a fair contract.
