Karen Lewis: “. . . Force Us Into Another Strike”

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.
