Karen Lewis: “. . . Force Us Into Another Strike”
August 31, 2015|Uncategorized
Just in time for the new school year, Chicago Teacher Union boss Karen Lewis claims an effort by new Chicago Public Schools CEO will “force us into another strike . . ”. Becky Schlikerman and Fran Spielman have the story in the Chicago Sun Times Online.
A call for Chicago teachers to pay their full pension contributions is “strike-worthy,” Chicago Teachers Union President Karen Lewis said Friday.
That amounts to a seven percent pay cut for teachers, Lewis told reporters at a downtown news conference.
It’s an effort by new Chicago Public Schools CEO Forrest Claypool to “force us into another strike,” she said.
