4 year contract Chicago teachers Union


Chicago Teachers Union voted late Tuesday to approve a four-year contract reached with Mayor Rahm Emanuel's administration just prior to a strike deadline last month.

The union said early totals showed 72 percent of voting members approved the deal and 28 voted against it. Results from fewer than 60 schools were waiting to be counted.

A Chicago Public Schools spokeswoman said the school board was expected to vote on the contract Dec. 7, the same day it would vote on a revised budget, which would account for provisions in the contract.

The vote was tallied two weeks after the union's influential House of Delegates overwhelmingly endorsed the tentative contract agreement. Membership was originally scheduled to vote at the end of last week, but the ballot was postponed because of what CTU officials said was a "printing delay" that kept copies of the agreement out of members' hands.

In addition to financial provisions, the contract includes changes to district policies sought by the union. Among those are an agreement to cap the city's number of independently operated charter schools and restrict their enrollment to just above their current capacity.

The district also agreed to obtain outside funding to pay for as many as 55 "community schools" at an annual cost of at least $500,000 per school while creating a task force to select those buildings and determine how they could include community health care, after-school activities and support for homeless or chronically truant students.

CTU's current membership will continue to have 7 percentage points of their required pension contributions paid for by the district, but a future generation of teachers those hired Jan. 1 and after won't receive the perk. In return, those new hires will get pay boosts that even out the loss of the pension pickup.

Teachers won't get cost-of-living raises for the first two years, with pay hikes of 2 percent and 2.5 percent in the final two years. Raises based on experience and education would be part of the contract's final three years.

Members will start paying higher health insurance costs in 2019.

I imagine there is a POINT you are trying to make, but you didn't make it. Would you like to explain the post?
Thanks from Kipper
