COE FALL 2018 FORUM - WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT TEACHER UNIONS
Wednesday, October 24 5:30pm
Lincoln Park Student Center Room 314AB
Teacher unions have been in the news quite a bit this past year, a major part of the national political conversation. A great deal of national attention was paid to the teacher strikes in "red states" (West Virginia, Arizona, Oklahoma). And this summer, the Supreme Court in a 5/4 vote supported the Janus decision - a far reaching verdict that will impact teacher unions. The decision effectively makes all states, so-called "right-to-work" states for public employees.
Teachers in public schools throughout the country have been members of local affiliates of either the NEA (National Education Association) or the AFT (American Federation of Teachers). Many charter schools teacher also belong to unions and there are some private schools that are unionized as well.
Understanding what teacher unions do: collective bargaining on "bread and butter" issues, working conditions, tenure & due process; professional development and education; policy and advocacy work are all issues our students will encounter as they begin their teaching career.
Our fall 2018 forum will offer a "teacher union 101" introduction; examine the controversies about and critiques of teacher unions and hear from classroom teachers about their life as a member of a teacher union. 3 CPDU's will be available for teachers.
Dr. Hilary Conklin will moderate the panel. Panelists will include:
- Steve Grossman, Retired social studies teacher, Niles West High School; President, North Suburban Teachers Union; Associate Director, DePaul Labor Education Center
- Natasha Robinson, Urban Prep Charter Academy
- Linda Perales, Corkery Elementary School
- Jhonna Maldonado, Yates Elementary School
- Jackson Potter, Back of the Yards High School
