Building public support and power in our schools

As we start the school year, here are a few ways you can add your unique voice to our CTU chorus. Use our social media accounts and our communications staff—our Facebook and Twitter feeds (be sure to tag @CTULocal1) and communications@ctulocal1.org—to spread the word about your first week back:

Sign up a new member at your school or in your work group, take a photo and share it with us! Take pictures of you holding union meetings and gathering with your CAT teams—your Contract Action Teams. Use the hashtags #FairContractNow and #PutItInWriting to remind our city of the promises that Mayor Lightfoot made everyone about smaller classes, full staffing, justice for our students and a fair contract for all.

One of the things researchers argue that affects Black population loss is the economic burden of punitive fines and fees like traffic tickets, and also the lack of jobs and opportunities.

Use Your Teacher Voice

Every voice matters—including yours. No-one can tell your story or your school’s story like you can. Send the CTU a brief (15-30 second) video about what your classroom and school needs, and what your students could achieve if those needs were met. We’re composing an anthem—and every voice lifted and singing this tune amplifies our mighty chorus.
