With the arrival of a new Chicago Public Schools CEO, the goal of our union remains unchanged — to collaborate in legitimate good faith in reaching a safety agreement with the district that respects the humanity of each and every person in our school buildings. Mr. Martinez returns to a different Chicago than the city he left in 2009, but we hope he is an independent thinker, a good partner and collaborator, and willing to work with all stakeholders to keep them safe, earn their trust and meet their high expectations.
