Chicago Teachers Union holding mock strike vote
CHICAGO — The Chicago Teachers Union will see how its members feel about a strike Thursday.
A practice vote is being held in every Chicago Public School.
The union’s Facebook page says this will prepare teachers for a possible strike authorization vote.
This comes after CPS CEO Forest Claypool said drastic cuts will be made in February without a state bailout.
“There will be fewer teachers,” Claypool wrote in a ChicagoTribune op-ed. “There will be larger class sizes. And the educational gains that our principals, teachers and students have worked so hard for will be jeopardized.”
