In bargaining, the CTU is required to go through a process called ‘fact-finding’ under Section 4.5 of the Illinois Educational Labor Relations Act (IELRA) – a law created by the mayor to undercut our bargaining rights and our ability to bargain for the schools our students and educators deserve. We’ve done that – and laid out in extensive detail both why CPS can afford our contract demands and why they should enshrine them in an enforceable contract with our members. On August 25, we rejected the fact-finder’s ruling in favor of CPS. Download our briefs, powerpoint and notes to learn more about why CPS can afford our demands – and why our members and students deserve what we’re bargaining for.
