"I support Members First because as their name says, they put their “Members First”. Their main focus is the concerns of their members: a safe and clean workplace, salary, benefits, and ensuring fully staffed schools. Members First also promises transparency for not only CTU members, but the city as well.

I am disappointed in the current leadership because they put their own political agenda first without addressing the membership they serve. They use union money to support their own personal causes and don’t speak for their membership. They use rhetoric that is unprofessional and harsh. I feel they don’t serve their members as a whole.

Schools need to be safe and clean for our members and students. I want to see our benefits and pay protected. Mostly, I want a union that represents its members."
