This is the full 2-14-2021 episode of the Labor Express Radio program.
On this episode of Labor Express Radio, we celebrate an agreement between the Chicago Teachers Union (CTU) and Chicago Public Schools on a plan for an at least safer return to schools than what CPS was originally demanding. It is a victory for the union who had fought hard to ensure the safety of school personnel and students alike during this pandemic. We also mourn the passing of Karen Lewis, President Emerita of the CTU, whose leadership and vision helped build the union into one of the most militant, progressive and powerful union locals in the nation. Our guest, Jackson Potter, was one of the founding members of CORE, the reform caucus behind the leadership of the union under Karen Lewis and Jesse Sharkey.
