"The current CTU leadership has morphed into political activism and has lost sight of its duties to represent the teachers of Chicago. CTU needs to focus on its members. We are the only school district in the state where our total compensation isn't pensionable. We need to set up a strike fund to help support our members in times of great sacrifice. We need to cut through all the red tape when it comes to using board approved vendors. We need to focus making it easier for our members to focus on teaching."
