The Chicago Teachers Union, the nation’s largest teachers union, has been at the forefront of a strike movement for weeks.
But now the union has become one of the most vocal targets of the labor movement, with some union leaders calling for the union to call a strike on June 7.
The Chicago Board of Education is negotiating a new contract with its teachers.
And union leaders say that negotiations between the union and Chicago’s school system have been going on for weeks, with both sides working on a “compromise.”
The union, however, has not yet called a strike, and the teachers are set to go on strike on Tuesday, June 6.
The union has repeatedly called for the school system to address its teachers’ concerns.
“We want to be able to go back to work and have some certainty that the district will address all of the issues that our members are raising,” said union president Karen Lewis.
“If we don’t see that, we won’t be able do our job.”
The labor movement has been on the forefront for years.
The American Federation of Teachers and other teachers unions have been active in recent years.
Their campaigns have often targeted the school district for its lack of transparency and the school board’s mishandling of teachers’ issues, including suspensions and firings.
The unions have also been outspoken about issues like pay and pensions.
But teachers union leaders have said that many of their members have been left out of the bargaining process.
Some union members have said they will not participate in the strike unless they see a pay increase.
That’s because of a law that’s passed by Congress that allows the U.S. government to pay teachers unions more if they win collective bargaining.
But Lewis and other union leaders believe that many union members will not take part in a strike unless their union has reached a deal with the school.
They say they want to see the district increase its share of district funding, but they are also demanding that the union agree to concessions like a raise in the teacher pension plan.
Lewis told The Associated Press that the strike could result in many of her members being laid off.
“The only thing we can do is fight,” Lewis said.
“There is no doubt in my mind that we are going to be in a fight.
We have to do it to be successful.”
A number of the teachers union’s union leaders, including vice president of government relations and public affairs Michael Loughner, have said the strike is a “political choice” that needs to be made.
The teachers have been working to reach a deal to address the problems plaguing the district.
They have also called for a pay raise and a restructuring of the district’s finances.
Lewis said the teachers have asked the district to make concessions in order to reach an agreement, but she said she and her colleagues are not prepared to do that.
“This is a political choice.
There is no question in my head,” Lewis told the AP.
“They have not yet reached a compromise.”
The school district says it will not negotiate over pay, and that they are committed to continuing to provide the best education possible.
The district also says it is ready to continue paying the teachers.
Lewis says that the teachers and their supporters will be in Chicago Tuesday for a strike rally at the South Side Cultural Center.
They will also attend a rally in front of the Capitol in Washington, D.C., for an event organized by the AFL-CIO.
The rally will be led by students from the Chicago City College District.
