Update on INA and SEIU Contract Negotiations
For the second time in seven years, Chicago Public Schools teachers will be on strike starting Thursday, walking out of class, they say, in the name of better schools.
Gathered on the stage of the union hall on Wednesday, the Chicago Teachers Union said its delegates were in full support of moving forward with a strike. Delegates had already authorized the walkout and set a date so it would have taken a reversal to cancel the strike.
We need pay and benefits that will give us dignity and respect. We are on strike until we can do better. Altogether, more than 30, workers will be on the picket lines. Officials say schools will be open, with principals and other administrators supervising any children that need a place to go.
They also are telling parents they can bring their children to libraries and some community organizations. Some , students who attend district-run schools will be impacted.
Another 62, students who attend charter and contract schools run by private organizations will not be affected.
The two sides say they will be back at the negotiating table on Thursday, and will work toward reaching a deal. Lightfoot announced Wednesday morning that she was cancelling school Thursday in anticipation of the strike.
She said she expected the strike, painting it as a strike of choice. When it comes to salary, it has focused on getting more money for veteran teachers and for office clerks and teacher aides, known as PSRPs. Since the current leadership took over the CTU in , it has been pushing a focus on social justice issues, moving far beyond the traditional union bread and butter concerns.
In , the union published a manifesto called the Schools Students Deserve that detailed the need for lower class sizes and more staff, such as librarians, social workers and counselors. In the last two contract fights, the union brought up these issues, but they also had to concentrate on protecting their members whose jobs were being threatened by school closings and the opening of charter schools.
The school district also had a budget deficit that made it difficult to argue for more resources. This year, they saw an opening to try to win big on these social justice issues. The union also feels compelled to push these demands after years of budget cuts that led to staff losses in schools. Lightfoot and her team have maintained they are committed to adding more nurses, social workers and more special education case managers to schools.
But they say putting these promises in the contract would limit their flexibility. For months, Lightfoot resisted putting enforceable class size caps, lowering class size limits and putting promises for more staff in the contract. She also has pointed out state law prohibits teachers from striking on issues outside of pay and benefits. Then, in recent days, the union offered up a compromise. They said lower class size and increased staffing could apply to the neediest schools first.
And just Monday, Lightfoot changed her position and signaled she was willing to write into the contract some commitments on class size and staffing. Speaking at a press conference Wednesday, Chicago Board of Education President Miguel del Valle argued that the union had essentially gotten what it wanted.
They say they still want a nurse, librarian and a social worker in every school. They also want to lower counselor caseloads. The union and school district say some tentative agreements have been reached, but many outstanding issues remain.
The union handed the school district 83 pages of demands on January But talks did not begin in earnest until after Lightfoot took office in May. Toggle navigation Listen Live. The union sees this as a moment to win battles it has been fighting for years. Many teachers say conditions in schools are unacceptable. Not at this time Give now.

We believe much can be resolved through further dialogue and have offered to meet all evening, all weekend, as long as it takes, to resolve the outstanding issues.

The October strike for education justice by the Chicago Teachers Union and Service Employees International Union Local 73 ended with a new agreement after 11 days on the picket line by more than 30, teachers and support staff.
