National CTU Solidarity Pledge: We've got your back!
To the Chicago Teachers Union Leaders and Members
We were outraged to learn that Mayor Rahm Emanuel has called for a court injunction to end your strike. We know that massive national support is needed to beat back this attack and win this inspirational struggle in defense of public education. We pledge that should you decide on Tuesday, Sept. 18 to continue your strike, we will immediately organize mass mobilizations -- up to and including walkouts, occupations, and job actions -- in solidarity with your struggle. We call on all labor, student, and community organizations to sign this pledge and mobilize accordingly. An injury to one is an injury to all!
