I heard this morning that the teachers at Passages charter in Chicago won a late night agreement on a union contract. If they hadn’t, Passages would have been the first charter school strike in the United States.
“Chicago has become the epicenter of charter union organizing in the country,” complained Andrew Broy, president of the Illinois Network of Charter Schools.
We’re number one!
Andrew should have known. Chicago is a union town.
WBEZ reports that the Passages contract gives their teachers a 21% pay increase. More details will be released later.
