The Chicago Teachers Union voted 73% to go on strike last Tuesday, forcing millions of children out of the classroom and back to remote learning.
This is just an excuse for teachers to sit at home and still get paid.
The Chicago Teachers Union is demanding a “full, comprehensive safety agreement,” setting up a showdown with Mayor Lori Lightfoot.
The new proposal includes a metric for closing all schools due to a COVID-19 surge, which the mayor and the schools chief strongly oppose. They favor a school-by-school approach instead. The proposal includes remote learning beginning Wednesday and a return to in-person learning on Jan. 18.
These include the metric for moving the entire district to remote learning, delaying the start of in-person learning until Jan. 18 and adopting a COVID-19 testing program where students opt out of testing rather than the current opt-in model. CPS has agreed with CTU on several issues, including providing KN95 masks for all students and offering testing for all staff next week, though the testing doesn’t have to be done prior to returning to work.
Some teachers don’t agree with the strike and want to be back in the classroom teaching.
However, a Chicago Teachers Union delegate threatened to “report” dissenters who show up for work.
The CTU is ready to target any dissenters and put them on a “list”

Fox News reported:
A Chicago Teachers Union delegate has vowed to “report” union employees who show up to work at their school.
Alex Forgue, a physics teacher at the Chicago Military Academy at Bronzeville, commented on a post inside a “CTU Members Only Facebook Group,” stating that he would be reporting members who go into work.
“As a delegate, I will be reporting the names of members who go in,” he commented on a post asking members if the Chicago Teachers Union is posting a “scab” list.
Forgue confirmed that he made the comment when speaking with Fox News Digital, but said that the union has not instructed delegates to keep track of who goes into work.
“Yes I did,” Forgue said when asked if he made the comment on Facebook. “However, CTU has not instructed any delegates to keep track of who went in. No word from CTU leadership about repercussions for going in.”
