Informational Pickets August 20-24
by Nathan Goldbaum | 08/17/2012
Although “On Strike” signs are rolling off the printing presses as a preparatory action, negotiations continue between CTU and CPS. This week, CTU will conduct pickets that are INFORMATIONAL ONLY at schools already in session.
Solidarity means we stick together. Track E schools will hand out leaflets to parents in informational pickets the week of August 20th through August 24th. Educators who are not currently in the schools should check the link above for their picket assignment. Retirees, citywide members, and non-member supporters should choose schools based on your availability.
Why are we holding informational pickets? We are picketing to inform staff, parents and community members of what is happening in our fight for a just contract and quality education for all students. We want to show CPS and the mayor that we are strong and determined to obtain a fair contract that provides the resources necessary to implement a better school day.
