14 DAYS OF STRIKE presents a discussion about the 2019 Chicago Teachers Union strike with six students at North-Grand High School (NGHS). There are approximately 36,000 teachers working in Chicago Public Schools (CPS). They are represented by the Chicago Teachers Union (CTU). In June 2019, the CTU’s contract with Chicago Public Schools expired and a contract dispute emerged. While pay was one of the issues included in the dispute, a call for reduced class sizes, and an increase in support staff like nurses, social workers and librarians were a major part of the union’s demands. The strike lasted 14 days—from October 17-31, 2019. By Public Collectors and Katy Jung, Alma Tapia, Maria Tapia, Jesse Salgado, Iridian Martinez, Leslie Carreno, Jadalis Nuñez, Blanca Velazco, Isabel Flores and Mireya Fuentes. Published in 2019, edition of 245.
Dimensions: 8.5 X 11", 22 pages
