United AFA Stand in Solidarity with Chicago Teachers Union & SEIU
October 23, 2019
Today, the Members of the United Master Executive Council spent the morning on the picket line with Chicago Teachers and Support staff represented by the Chicago Teachers Union and SEIU, respectively. Joining the picket line first at Passages Charter school, we shared in the energy of the picket line and added our full support for the priorities established by the Teachers and Support Staff who play a critical role in the education of the children of Chicago. Later, we moved on to join the picket line at Peirce Elementary School to add our support to the group of striking teachers and support personnel.
Solidarity is the key component in order for workers to accomplish their priorities in bargaining. Today’s events were an excellent example for the Labor community to see this principle in action.
