CTU Encourages May Day Absence from School

The Chicago Teachers Union is publicizing their members to take May Day off, which could result in hundreds of teachers being absent to celebrate International Workers Day. Matt Masterson has the story in the Chicago Tribune.

CTU posted a schedule on its website this week listing a half-dozen events union members are asked to participate in on May 1.

“Many CTU members will want to take the day off to join their students and the movement in the streets on this important day, both nationally and internationally,” the posting states. “CTU vigorously defends the right of any member to use one of their Personal Business Days or an unpaid ‘0 Day’ to join these activities.”
