Event description

Description

Chicago tells the story of the 2012 CTU’s strike and explores their successful organising agenda that empowered their members and mobilised parents, students and the wider community. That agenda produced a strike vote of 98% on a 90% turnout, 9 days of mass pickets, creative sit-ins and demonstrations covering 840 schools across the city, and hundreds of thousands of vocal and active supporters. As a result, the CTU and their allies managed to stall the corporate onslaught and develop a fighting agenda demonstrating that another education system is possible.
