CHICAGO — Mayor Lori Lightfoot will presided over a meeting of the Chicago City Council Wednesday, but not before multiple groups called for change.

It’s common for aldermen to join other organizations for pre-council press conferences and Wednesday was no different. Here is a short list of groups and their demands:

  • The Chicago Teachers Union wants parental leave benefits provided to city workers to be extended to their members
  • Alderman Byron Sigcho-Lopez wants additional investigations into crypto fraud
  • Labor groups including Justice for App Workers Midwest want to stop “app worker deactivation without due process”
  • The Illinois Clean Jobs Coalition wants to set a carbon emissions standard for new buildings in the city
