CTU teachers, paraprofessionals and support staff at 15 charter schools run by the Acero charter network formerly known as UNO are in the midst of their historic strike—the first against a charter operator in U.S. history.

Our demands are simple:

· Smaller class sizes
· Increased special education funding
· More autonomy over curriculum and grading
· Equal pay for equal work
· Additional resources for classrooms and students
· Sanctuary schools for our overwhelmingly Latinx student population
· Better compensation and treatment of paraprofessionals

We’re inviting families, students, all CTU district and ACTS members, and labor and community allies to show up, support Acero strikers and show that the whole community and family of labor is in solidarity to win for the students, teachers and support staff throughout the network!
