Chicago Charter Teachers Organize

From the Chicago Alliance of Charter Teachers and Staff:

Taking a historic step forward, the majority of teachers at three Chicago-area charter school campuses, joined by parents and community leaders, today served notice to their school officials, Mayor Daley, Chicago school board members and the State of Illinois, that they have formed a union. The teachers seek immediate recognition of their collective bargaining unit and a commitment by school officials to promptly bargain and settle a contract.

The teachers work at three Civitas Schools’ Chicago International Charter Schools (CICS) — Wrightwood, Northtown Academy and Ralph Ellison campuses — under a charter held by the Chicago Charter School Foundation. They would be the first unionized charter school teachers in the Chicago area.
