CHICAGO—Today, the Chicago Teachers Union released the following statement in response to reports that the Chicago Board of Education has filed an injunction against the Union for calling a one-day unfair labor practice strike:

“We disagree,” said CTU spokeswoman Stephanie Gadlin. “The Supreme Court 60 years ago authorized unfair labor practice strikes under the National Labor Relations Act, and we believe teachers have those rights. This was a one-day job action. Their charges were filed after the fact and they seek to enjoin us from doing something we have no intention of doing again. We call on CPS to join us in fighting for more revenue for schools.”
