Tuesday, October 11, will be the first day of a CTU strike, should a contract not be reached before then.
Join us this weekend for an update from local school members on the progress of the strike and opportunities for community support.
Following the meeting, members will be canvassing to call for a NO vote on our ward’s charter school referendum. WF33 won this ballot question through a summer-long petitioning drive that collected more than 1,000 signatures. We now have just a few weeks left to win the referendum. Canvassing materials will be provided.
No experience necessary and everyone is welcome!
