K. three three are we were able to win some of that for the first time we have Capstar class sizes since I've ever been looking at union contracts that's you know considerable move forward it didn't get the class size that people want or what our children need but it it does help advance that struggle in a definitive step forward we also fought for students that aren't in homeless situations or in temporary living situations so for the first time our contract has reference to full time coordinators when schools have seventy or more students that are designated as homeless and your listeners might be asking well man that's a lot of snow is what if you have thirty or fewer there are several stipends that go to help students in those situations with our having free transit and waving to our any kind of fees at the school level or providing housing services in clothing but you know for the first time we actually have a full time staff person and increased I pens for students that find themselves homeless for housing and secure and we were asking for more we wanted actually language that would have forced the city to provide all students with affordable housing or section eight vouchers or actual units that their families can move into because we've seen a huge exodus of black families in particular from the city and has everything to do a transfer for cation increasing housing costs so as teachers if we don't fight for those things you know we have no job security but it's also immoral if we sit by and watch as our students and their families are being evicted or priced out of the neighborhoods and can no longer attend our schools yes these broad demands that you're talking about greater support staff smaller classroom sizes more affordable housing in the city for teachers and students they're known as bargaining for the common good and Chicago teachers have been at the forefront of this kind of bargaining so tell us more about that why do you think Chicago has been the site of giving voice to these broader struggles I mean pop part of it is when we came into office in twenty ten Lewis became president Chicago teachers union are we many of us involved in that effort were part of community organizations and then been doing important work between schools and organizations in the black community and I live acts community that centered around fighting school closings fighting privatization investing in sustainable community schools that were different model that incorporated parents and their assets and ensure that you know community advocates had a place in the school to help educate with popular and appropriate culturally appropriate models of curriculum so many of us were involved in that struggle together for years prior to helping a new carcass come in the office in twenty ten and there's a rich tradition of Camille organizing in Chicago that lends itself we have local school councils reform that occurred in the late eighties during the hell Washington administration first black mayor that empowers L. wax our record number of black and white next on to school boards at their school site and they can determine the budget the hiring and firing of principals curriculum so it's a pretty radical experiment in democracy that is a long live tradition here so it naturally want to itself the partnerships that we've been able to build establishing grow over the years and as a result many of those Camille organizations have helped us develop pretty radical proposals for sustainable community schools which we have in this contract in the previous contract ten million dollars a year up to a half a million dollars per school that allows us to put in wraparound supports different kinds of curriculum parent programming after school programming that really has transformed many of our students lives and their families are as well so that was a proposal point out that we were part of the fight for fifteen coalition fifteen dollars an hour in with S. yeah you and other community or eggs and that was a demand we made last time were part of a lift the ban coalition which is demanding right control for Chicago we currently have a state ban on rent control are that was something we proposed to the district they you know refuse and ultimately we did not get that in the contract but it's on they will continue to fight for so just a a number of examples with the homeless coordinator positions that was something we consulted with the Chicago coalition for the homeless and they were extraordinarily helpful and supportive of that demand so it's really about praxis about building it relationships so we're not just in it for ourselves but we're actually trying to address the root cause many problems we're trying to solve that's right not yeah that's good community work this story made national headlines and I know there is a lot of solidarity for the Chicago teachers here in Wisconsin I'm wondering what kind of response did you get from the local community in Chicago and that can be parents students but also you know local elected officials like mayor Laurie life fight yeah I mean this was a world of difference nine day between twenty twelve and twenty nineteen and twenty twelve we go on strike we're against a popular mayor who's polling at seventy percent support he's on the right hand man a present Obama who's a local celebrity and you know very well beloved in Chicago and he has a lot of campaign cash he's you know working all angles got a huge PR machine so that was a formidable opponent I think ultimately we were successful but you know not only was it defensive it was also in in some ways we're politically isolated so you saw thirty five alderman who make up our fifty person city council are writing a letter sing us to not go on strike in condemning a strike for the twenty nineteen we have thirty five alderman supported the strike you know huge shift in power dynamics in the city in terms of parents and students support I think you you shot in the national attention and and media coverage of the strike and students understand and support the idea that they deserve more and better and that what other children in wealthy areas of the suburbs receive you know should be denied to them just because they were born in a different zip code that's not fair you know it doesn't connect to the equity in freedom and justice principles that we teach about and if we really mean it when we say that we better do something about it so I think you saw like huge amount of ocular community public support for the strike again similar to what we saw in twenty twelve yes so with all of this momentum and the support of the community maybe that kind of gets at the next question I have for you I'm thinking about how as you mentioned there been years of austerity measures cutting back funding and support for public schools and educators so what made this year at the right time for a seat you to strike that's a great question so this time around in part because we shifted some of the political alliances we took risks you know we ran it supported socialist candidates for our city council that of one we cooked chances against big names with lots of money and influence M. backing with the key political leaders in the Democratic Party across the state and even when we didn't win we made our voices heard and had real game changing influence on the political decision making on all levels of government we got a bunch of our own.

"Lakefront. WBZ news time nine thirty on Wednesday. The Chicago Board of education, displayed something teachers students administrators and parents hadn't seen in three years a balance sheet containing a budget surplus instead of reading my guests this weekend. Probably hope much of that extra money ends up in the classrooms in nurses and counselors offices and maybe their paychecks. It's a conversation with the top officials of the Chicago teachers union. Hello. I'm political editor Craig Delamore. And this is at issue. I guess this weekend are the highest ranking officers of the Chicago teachers union local one resident Jesse Sharkey and his partner in labor activism union. Vice Stacy Davis gates, Jesse Sharkey was appointed to be president of the union last September replacing Karen Lewis who retired for health reasons. Mr. Sharkey was vice president for nine years, and he was a key player in contract talks way back then and in the twenty twelve teachers strike he was a high school social studies teacher before he was elected to union leadership. Stacy Davis gates was elected vice president after serving six years as legislative and political director. She was a leader of the unions work on behalf of its endorsed candidates miss. Davis gates also has been president of United working families for nearly two years. He is also a high school social studies teacher Jesse Sharkey and Stacy Davis gates, welcome. Thanks for having. Fine. Thank you. We should mention something else. You didn't say there, which is that we're both parents. I've got a couple of kids and CPS schools myself have three children two of which are CPS students right now. Okay. Well, and that's that is an important dimension these days because that means you have a stake in the game not that it's a game anymore wherever CPS administrators ended last year with a three hundred twenty four million dollars surplus last year the year before that at a two hundred seventy five million dollar deficit. So that's about a six hundred million dollars. Swing. Is the school board gonna end up regretting letting you guys know that it's gotten more money with the school board is benefiting from a lot of work that a lot of people did including the teacher's union are members in particular getting more revenue, and it's been a demand for a long time. We spent years pointing out that Hughes corporate tax breaks that there are deals being made that benefited banks downtown, and then all that meant that. There was a real budget cuts to the board of Ed and recently in Springfield. There's been almost a billion dollars worth of new revenue coming into the schools over the course of the last couple of years, and there's a lot to do with our advocacy around. That issue has an it also had to do with the the passage of new funding legislation. Some of that money is coming from there. Right. But that's right. That's what I'm saying. Is that there's been there's been legislation and also tips plus money coming back into the schools. About one hundred million dollars a year. And Aspen, exactly. The kind of thing that we've been advocating for for years. But before we celebrate to be perfectly honest. That surplus reflects the budget cuts that have been baked in overtime. So while we have been raising the issues of the lack of staffing in the school buildings. So the lack of adults in the school buildings the lack of school, nurses, and social workers and counselors that is with us surplus also represents so there, so you know, is threefold we fought for tiff surplus that we can identify within that overall surplus. We've fought for new funding formula that looks a lot like the school Chicago students deserve. And we've also had to absorb a number of your Coney and cuts fifty school closings along the way that also represent that surplus. So there is both victories within that that we will take all the credit for to be perfectly honest with you because we.
