The Chicago Teachers Union has gone on strike today, demanding smaller class sizes and fighting the corporate takeover of public education. You can read more about their strike at Labor Notes.
Our local is in solidarity with the CTU, as we are also public employees, teachers, and facing similar fights against privatization and the negative effects of budget cuts on the quality of education in our university. Here is the full text of our solidarity statement with the CTU.
