Chicago teachers walk the picket line this morning and all week. It’s informational for now.

August 20, 2012

The signs are printed and ready to go.

Some Chicago schools, known as “E Schools” because they are on a different in-session schedule, are open this morning. Students and parents were greeted by CTU teachers walking informational picket lines.

From the CTU:

Although On Strike signs are rolling off the printing presses as a preparatory action, negotiations continue between CTU and CPS. Next 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 will receive an email with details of which school they are assigned to support and what time to arrive. Please check your email Inbox for details.

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.
