CHICAGO — The Chicago Teachers Union is sending a delegation to Springfield this morning to lobby state lawmakers for more money, more benefits, cheaper housing and child care for union members, and higher taxes to pay for it all.

The union will rally against Governor Bruce Rauner’s plan to trim social spending to help balance the state budget, and against his effort to make Illinois the 26th right-to-work state.

Right-to-work would effectively make union dues voluntary.

The CTU says, without the revenue from mandatory dues, it wouldn’t be able to provide a full array of support services to its members.
