Event at a Glance


October 24, 2019, 9:00 pm

The Chicago Teachers Union and SEIU Local 73 are on strike for class size caps, fair wages, support for homeless students, affordable and sustainable housing, a nurse in every school and more counselors and librarians – and more!

We’ve learned that they have reached a tentative agreement that includes naptime for Pre-K students. Yes, we need to strike to get little ones naptime.

Tune in this Thursday October 24, 2019 at 9 PM EST to hear from rank and file members about what they are winning, how they are winning, and what this means for union power and solidarity in Chicago.

This web seminar is free to everyone, but you must register to participate.

Discussion will be facilitated by Labor Notes staff writer and organizer Barbara Madeloni.

  • Christine Dussault, CTU, elementary teacher
