Why Teachers Should Join the May Day March
Defend our Education & Democracy
Our union is under attack. We have to defend ourselves and it’s not only our contract. Public education in a democratic society is now in question.
May Day is a perfect time to speak about the future of our public schools.
No to Austerity and Privatization
Marching and speaking up on May Day will help us and all the other public sector workers under the hammer of privatization and austerity cuts. We need our city libraries, mental health clinics and decent transportation. We see our services in the public sector being cut to the bone.
May Day March Builds Solidarity for the CTU
Preparing to strike also means building solidarity with other sectors of labor, students and parents. Our union fight back for a contract must be supported by the labor movement.
No to Rahm! No to CPS Attacks on Public Education
For teachers and public school workers May Day will be a perfect time to build solidarity within our schools and unions. We must march to defend our jobs, schools and contracts. Our unity gives us strength if we are forced to strike.
Stop Deportations and Full Rights for Immigrants
For immigrant workers who brought May Day back to Chicago it is day to defend our families and call for justice not deportation. Children need their parents. We support families.
