From Utah Democrats:
Chicago teachers are taking a stand for quality education and fair
employment practices. They understand and define key elements
necessary to support professionals and students in classrooms. They
envision changes in the system that will realistically effect desired
results. They are leaders uniting their voices, speaking for teachers
across the country, acting for the rights of educators, parents, and
young Americans. We caucus leaders of the Salt Lake County Democratic
Party, are proud to stand in solidarity with the CTU in their strike
and in their contract negotiations.
In the name of professional integrity, dignity, and quality,
