For the end of the three year delegate term this January, the CTU held nomination meetings for delegate positions in citywide representative units. This included PSRP and clinician positions for both district and charter schools. The number of members nominated for each representative unit did not exceed the number of positions. So, none of the nominations were contested and elections were not necessary. The names of these new delegates are listed below for each representative unit.
In accordance with Article V, Section 2 of the Chicago Teachers Union Constitution and By-Laws, the term of current delegates will end on January 31, 2021. The Notice of Nominations and Election for each citywide functional group will be sent via email to each member eligible to vote and posted on the CTU website on Friday, December 4, 2020.
