Let’s unleash the power of 30,000.

The current CTU/CPS contract will expire on June 30, 2015.

The most important activity in CTU’s contract campaign is to support the establishment of a Contract Action Team (CAT) in each school. The CAT is the body that communicates regularly with school staff and with CTU. CATs will brainstorm ideas for actions to strengthen the Union in the building and citywide. Ideally, there will be one CAT member for every 5 CTU members at a school.

The CATs will receive information from District Supervisors (DS) – the rank-and-file activists who coordinate the schools in their respective regions. This allows for communication between schools. District supervisors meet monthly to discuss the issues in their regions.

If you don’t know who is on your Contract Action Team, ask your delegate. If one has not been organized at your school, contact CTU Organizing Director Norine Gutekanst.


Bargaining is underway now. For updates, stay tuned to and our facebook and twitter accounts.

Let’s build our power. If we pull together, we can win.
