One Day Strike Coming
- The Chicago Teachers Union voted Wednesday evening to approve a one-day “showdown” strike on April 1 — which will include a massive downtown rally — to bring attention to ongoing contract negotiations and the state’s education funding crisis.
“I think it’ll be a clear message. Based on the current organizing, we’ll shut this city down,” Tammie Vinson, a special education teacher at Oscar DePriest Elementary School said after the vote at the International Operating Engineers Hall.
You know what would also send a message? Rahm firing each and every teacher that walks out - not that we'd ever wish evil upon a group of people that sent pizzas to Ferguson along with a few bus-loads of supporters, is teaching anti-police classes and garners support from assholes who batter police during so-called "peaceful" protests.
