The Schools Chicago Students Deserve 2.0

My Union

Caring, united, democratic: CTU is more than 25,000 teachers, paraprofessionals and clinicians acting as one. Learn about fellow members. Ensure that union staff can keep you in the loop. Participate in our democracy.

My Rights

In every school and workplace, unity in action protects our members and the students we serve. Learn how to stand up for your rights, unite with fellow CTU members, and get help from CTU staff when you need it.

My Movement

Along with parents, students and community we advocate for the schools – and the city – that our students deserve. Learning, working and living conditions are not separate. Together, our Union wages a comprehensive fight.

Oct. 26 LEAD: Legislators Educators Appreciation Dinner

Our annual Legislators and Educators Appreciation — LEAD — is an opportunity for rank-and-file members to engage elected officials in an evening of celebration and coalition-building for legislative initiatives in Chicago, Springfield and nationwide. Tickets $60 per seat.

Educators of Chicago

No educator’s impact can ever be fully measured, which is why your daily struggles and victories deserve to be told. In the Chicago Teachers Union, we celebrate one another.

Your Union is Here to Help

Caring, united, democratic: CTU is more than 25,000 teachers, paraprofessionals and clinicians acting as one.

Campaign Initiatives

Fighting for Fair Contracts

Eleven out of 12 contracts at CTU’s unionized charter schools are expiring in 2018. In addition, nearly 25,000 CTU educators at district-run schools will see our contract expire after this school year. Our unity, our strength and our power must be organized and deployed to win good pay and good conditions for teaching and learning in the Chicago Public Schools.

Report:

Still Separate, Still Unequal

On the 59th anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court’s landmark Brown v. Board of Education decision, the Chicago Teachers Union (CTU) released a report on the history of disruptive actions against communities of color by Chicago Public Schools (CPS), exemplified by school closings that intensify the harmful effects of segregated schools and neighborhoods.
