Skip to comments.CPS classes canceled Wednesday after Chicago Teachers Union votes to refuse in-person schooling

Chicago Public Schools CEO Pedro Martinez said Monday he’s “not going to give up” trying to reach an agreement with the Chicago Teachers Union that averts a districtwide move to remote learning amid a spike in city COVID-19 cases. “I visited six schools today, and our network chiefs were visiting schools across the city. And one of the things that we saw was just significant differences across schools,” Martinez told the Tribune before describing some schools that recorded low staff and student attendance and other schools with opposite experiences. “When I saw that today, it just, for me, confirmed that we need to have a solution that’s at the school level, where we can be nimble, where we can respond to what’s happening.”

Pay us to sit at home. Or else.
Why does anyone stay in Chicago?
They like sitting on their fat asses at home while getting a check. Tax payers should refuse to pay them.
The teachers are afraid. I’ll assume that all, if not most, are vaccinated. So, make the offer......Kids do it remotely. Teachers have to report to their school and teach their classes from their classroom.
Be interesting to see how they would react to that.
If it’s about safety, they should fear nothing with that setup.
But, they’ll protest against that because they want to get paid, while at home, wearing their pajamas.
Chicago schoolteachers are some of the highest paid in the US with a generous retirement package that exceeds the salaries of most that are working.
Pay them ZERO.
If they’re all vaccinated, what’s the problem ???????????????
How does that differ from “teachers go on strike?”
“Workplace rules” in all union contracts are agreed to by the employer.
So they don’t “feel like” following them. Violation of contract.
About the 100 million federal dollars paid to make the schools safe to teach in?
90% of the teachers are vaccinated.
Isn’t that how it’s going to be done? You think the teachers are going to be teaching from home?
The vote, I hear, was overwhelming.
Teachers have got a taste of working from home and will need to be dragged back to school kicking and screaming.
RE: they want to get paid, while at home, wearing their pajamas.
All those Karens at home looking casual.
Can you imagine Congress doing that, too?
Sheila Jackson Lee, Maxine Waters, Rashida Tlaib and even Jerry Nadler BEFORE their makeup is on?
The CTU and the NHS have a lot in common...
They should give them 1 day to decide to come back and then fire them. All. Replace them with people who want to work. There are plenty of those people still out there.
Too bad Chicago doesn’t have a mayor.
I was born in Chitown.
I have never, even going back to older Daly, seen the City NOT giving in to the unions.
AS a result, pay increases for bus drivers, police, teachers etc. keep going up up up.
The unions NEVER lose these disputes, because I don’t recall a mayor forcing the issue with a threat to sue them for breech of contract.
So, now you have this mayor saying this action is illegal, and she will take action.
I forgot where, but that was discussed back in 2020. Set up a camera in each class room, teachers live stream their lessons and can get full use of any needed classroom items to teach. They refused saying it was too dangerous, even with a mask on as other teachers would be in the building.
I’m willing to bet some are so scared they will teach remote from FL.
Why does anyone stay in Chicago?
To get paid for not working?
