Show Your Support for Fellow Union Members, Join the Chicago Teachers Union and SEIU Local 73 at a Rally THIS SATURDAY

| October 25, 2019

Over 25,000 teachers and public school support staff are preparing to enter their second week on strike.  The Chicago Teachers Union and SEIU Local 73 members have been fighting to secure a fair contract that enhances working conditions and improves schools.  Their fight is one for fair treatment, both for workers and students.

Teamsters Local 727 stands in solidarity with all teachers and affected staff and encourages Local 727 members to show their support for these workers by joining with fellow Teamsters and union members across the city at a rally tomorrow, Saturday, October 26 in Union Park at 10:00 a.m.

“I urge all Teamsters to come out on Saturday and support our CTU and SEIU Brothers and Sisters,” said John Coli, Jr., Secretary-Treasurer of Local 727.  “Together we are strong.  Together we have power.  And together, we can help Chicago public school teachers, clinicians, teaching assistants, janitors, bus aides, and other support staff win this fight and secure the respect, justice, and fair treatment they rightfully deserve.”
