My Rights

In every school and workplace, unity in action protects our members and the students we serve.

Together, our union fights to win.

Teachers, use code DVF to be paid for flex days

Teachers at schools that flexed the final PD day over the course of the year have worked the time for the day and do not need to come in to work on Monday, June 24. However, in order to get paid for the day, they will need to enter the code DVF in Kronos. The code is now open for entry by teachers. TEACHERS MUST ENTER THE CODE THEMSELVES. CLERKS ARE UNABLE TO ENTER IT.

When We Fight, We Can Win

From reversing unfair unsats and evaluations, to protecting seniority to winning on religious freedom, the CTU has won a number of key arbitrations this spring.

Common Concerns

Union members and staff stick up for our rights together. Find basic information here to help you solve common problems such as bully principals, grading issues or support for oversize classes.

Standard Forms

Download forms for accident reports, grievance authorization, waivers, and other frequently needed forms.

Handle a Grievance

A grievance is any workplace problem you may have. If a situation exists that runs counter to the law or your contract, the Union can help you fix it.

My Contract

Your contract provides rights that generations of educators fought for and won. You need to know your rights to enforce them. Learn your contract. Study and discuss these rights with your coworkers. Together, Union members and staff can make our schools better places to teach and learn.

Connect with a Union Represent­ative

Every school and workplace has specific, expert staff devoted to helping you solve problems at work.

Fighting for Fair Contracts

CTU is fighting for quality pay and benefits (including health care), full staffing in our schools, smaller class sizes and justice for students and families. Get updates and resources for our contract fights here.
