What's in the Tentative Agreement synopsis
Be sure to check out page two—the back side of the pdf—for a quick overview of the class size provisions. This powerful new language forces CPS to hold to the upper limits of class size that the district has routinely violated.

Mayor Lightfoot and Chicago Public Schools are laying off brilliant educators as our school communities struggle to emerge from a pandemic. We’re trying to sort through the desire for the mayor and CPS to lay off educators after receiving nearly $2 billion from the Biden administration — funds that should have been used to stop the need for layoffs. CTU brothers and sisters: Contact your field rep and know your rights.

While we can all agree that immense progress has been made since the days of enslavement, the clear scars of inequality, inequity and injustice continue to pillage our nation and the city of Chicago on a daily basis. We see it, in the lack of investment in our Black and Brown neighborhoods. We see it, in the daily interaction Black citizens have with law enforcement. And we see it, in many of the policies and practices coming out of both Chicago City Hall and our nation’s capital. While we applaud actions currently moving in our own state and in the U.S. Congress to commemorate Juneteenth, we urge our elected leaders to focus on more pressing issues such as securing voting rights, investing in public education, and supporting all efforts at racial, economic, housing and environmental justice. As both a nation and a union of educators, we must uphold critical race theory and embrace the importance of anti-racist teaching and critical pedagogy as companions to historical acknowledgement. Leaders must also acknowledge the history and ongoing contributions of the indigenous settlers of our country, and in earnest, not just rhetoric, begin healing those scars and make Indigenous Peoples' Day a reality for Cook County. The best way to honor those who built this nation for free, in bondage, is to fight forward for a society that is based on equity, justice and fairness for all, no matter their ZIP code, color, creed or citizenship status.

After running as the law and order candidate, Mayor Lightfoot has done little to change policing in Chicago. Black and Latino people account for more than 9 out of 10 arrests and uses of force, a disparity just as pronounced as it was under Rahm Emanuel.
