The Chicago Teachers Union proudly announces its early endorsements for the 2022 election season for the candidates listed here. These endorsements were made after thorough screening by the CTU’s Political Action and Legislative committees, approval by the CTU’s Executive Board, and final ratification by the CTU House of Delegates.
The Illinois General Assembly has started its spring legislative session, and CTU is there advocating for what our schools need. Our goal is to build on our recent victories and to pass legislation that makes concrete improvements in school governance and oversight and that allows us to be more effective in our work.

The CTU House of Delegates voted at its January 8, 2020 House of Delegates meeting to make 10 endorsements for the March 17, 2020 election in addition to the seven endorsements it made at its December meeting.
