Update on fight against retaliation toward members staying safe and remote

The Union and our rank-and-file members have initiated a multi-pronged strategy to push back on discipline cases against members in retaliation for their activism around its efforts to force educators back into school buildings. It is already having an effect. As of today, CPS has dropped an additional 21 of the 55 cases, leaving 34 outstanding.

We will also all respond to CTU retaliation (if there is any) with a strike. Many members still have questions. The answers below are meant to address concerns and confusion members have raised with us, so far.

Cast your vote for safety

For months, rank-and-file members have organized and agitated for an enforceable agreement that prioritizes safety, equity and trust. CPS has dragged its feet at the negotiating table, preferring to dictate terms rather than engage educators. That’s why we’re asking for all members to vote yes on taking action with the entire union in every District school!
