This resolution calling for a campaign in defense of Technology Coordinators was adopted by the April 6, 2022 House of Delegates meeting.
The Internet and the news are awash with stories of how young people are dealing with the stress and anxiety of the pandemic. Educators are reporting more discipline problems, students acting out and even engaging in self harm. And the PSRPs in our school are on the frontlines dealing with these crises.
CTU held a series of regional PSRP meetings this spring to allow members to engage with each other and with CTU staff.
love your PSRPs today. Give them their flowers and their tribute while they are still here with us, with a bouquet, a special meal or gift, or simple acknowledgement of the tremendous difference they make in our lives.
PSRP Judy Mahoney is exactly the kind of employee CPS should value. She served as the school clerk at Whittier Elementary in Pilsen for 23 years until a drunk driver changed the course of her life one night. Now, four years later, CPS has slashed Judy’s position at the school and, had our Union not fought back, she would have been out of job at the end of June.
On May 25 and May 27, 2021 remote nominations meetings will be held for citywide functional groups that have delegate vacancies. If there are more candidates than vacant positions, an electronic election will be held on June 4 and 4, 2021.
Saying “no” to inappropriate assignments today can help ensure your school has the proper staffing you need tomorrow. CPS will never provide our schools with the staffing and resources they need and that have been promised if PSRPs continue to play the dutiful helper role — always willing to chip in when needed.
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.
Instead of honoring PSRPs’ right to a safe workplace, Lightfoot and the Board are defying an arbitrator’s ruling as well as the mayor’s own public health guidance to compel these PSRPs to work in unsafe buildings when they could be working remotely.
