Can we clap back with some ACTUAL ANECDOTES to educate folks about what teachers actually use our daily teacher peeps for? The good, the bad, and the ugly. @chalkbeatCHI you missed the opportunity to educate folks so I’m hoping some friends will help me... #faircontractnow 12/12
This is about better working condition for every educator in the one of the largest urban school districts in the country. This is about the 350,000+ students we serve and families we partner with. It’s always been about that. Don’t get it twisted. #faircontractnow 11/12
because polarizing rhetoric and sound bites aren’t going to improve the profession or the state of our classrooms and experiences of our students. So although I trust MY principal and believe in our team, negotiations aren’t about me. #faircontractnow 10/12
The conversation re: mandated principal-directed prep periods needs to be grounded in data (the qualitative info @RReddicliffe and I provided apparently didn’t make the cut 🙄) as does every aspect of contract negotiations... #faircontractnow 9/12
We have an administration that values teachers, our time, our autonomy, and the importance of supporting educators in the roles we fulfill because we are a TEAM and we’ve built trust. But I have worked with 4 principals & it’s simply not the case everywhere #faircontractnow 8/12

Justice for Families
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.
