Together, our union fights to win.
Layoff RightsDespite inadequate staffing and large class sizes, CPS continues to disrespect educators with layoffs that hurt our members, our students and our schools. Thanks to our contract, CPS is required to follow some rules when they make these layoffs and laid off teachers have rights.
When We Fight, We Can WinFrom reversing unfair unsats and evaluations, to protecting seniority to winning on religious freedom, the CTU has won a number of key arbitrations this spring.

Mayor Lightfoot’s new Board of Education has a lot of injustice to undo. Join us at the first meeting of the mayor’s newly hand-picked board of education. Let them know our schools have real needs that must be addressed, remind them that the new mayor ran on an equity education platform that aligns with our needs and demands – and tell them that we need a fair contract now.
