Illinois Teacher Unions Endorse Gubernatorial Candidate
January 12, 2018|Uncategorized
Just in case somebody missed it, both teacher unions have joined with other Big Labor unions and officially endorsed a candidate for governor. One can only guess how much influence they will have in the upcoming elections. Rick Pearson has the story in Morning Spin in the Chicago Tribune.
Democratic governor candidate J.B. Pritzker now has the backing of the state’s two major teachers’ unions after the endorsement of the Illinois Education Association.
Pritzker got the support of the Illinois Federation of Teachers last month, and the IEA endorsement represents a further consolidation of organized labor money and resources behind the billionaire entrepreneur and investor.
