Despite strong opposition from the Chicago Teachers’ Union, representing the educators, the Chicago Public Schools and the city administration have decided to reopen in-person classes on Monday
We look at the victory of Chicago’s teachers, the violence faced by refugees in South Africa, and the ambulance workers striking in Meghalaya, India.
After the City met the union’s final demand regarding days missed due to the strike, the CTU declared a victory and classes will resume tomorrow
We also take a look at the struggle by workers in Spain regarding the protection of their jobs.
The major demands of the teachers who are organized under the Chicago Teachers Union are better pay and benefits, fully staffed schools, smaller classrooms and justice for students and families
Over 25,000 teachers and around 7,500 support staff members of the Chicago Public School (CPS) system have gone on strike
