Illinois Senate Bill 7
So, when Senate Bill 7 created a new threshold for strike authorization and limited the right to strike to salary and benefits, it didn’t take being a genius to have predicted a strike in Chicago.
Both sides even say that they are close to an agreement on money issues. But the problem is that if the CTU leadership says okay to the salary and benefits that the board has offered then negotiations are over because the board can refuse to discuss evaluations, job assignments or class size. That’s the law.
The legislature that passed this law is controlled by Democrats, the Governor who signed it is a Democrat. Democrats have become anti-teacher, anti-public education, and anti-union. Please vote for emergent party candidates!
