Mayor Lori Lightfoot has walked away from the bargaining table again after instructing her CPS leadership team to submit a “last, best and final offer” to the Union at 11:15 p.m. on Thursday night. CPS could do so much better, but refuses. Stay strong. Stay united. Raise your fighting voices even louder. Watch for updates .
Our union shared this open letter with Chicago public school parents as negotiations with Mayor Lori Lightfoot and CPS leadership continue. We continue to work towards reaching an agreement that supports the safety, equity and trust every public school community in Chicago needs and deserves.
