Whose rights are more important? CTU Social Justice Scam

Whose rights are more important?

That is the issue when you have inexperienced negotiators driven by ideology. Zealots who focus on politics make miscalculations and agreements that disenfranchise groups.

Look at all the protections Chicago Teachers Union members have lost over 12 years of with social justice leadership: seniority does not count for anything, job protection, pension security, all different salaries bands, schools that have particular classifications.

Did the fired black teachers get their jobs back?

Did the hundreds of redefined teachers get their jobs back?

Did the central office CTU teachers get their jobs back?

Did early childhood teachers get their jobs back?

Did the coaches get their jobs back?

What did we win for our communities and students?

Start asking these questions and ask for quantifiable answers, not platitudes or threats that you are right-wing or a dissent.

The problem we are facing now is the polarization and politicization of our union have destroyed our solidarity as individual workers who respect each other's rights. Social justice leadership sacrificed those rights for the greater good, whose only goal is political power rather than Union Solidarity.

Why are we so frustrated by a fellow union person's actions? It is not because of what they are doing.

It is because of what a social justice leadership negotiated. We have been conditioned to blame our fellow workers rather than the people sending out emails to vilify fellow union workers.

It is all a deflection from the incompetence and corruption of the current CTU Leadership.

The true meaning of social justice is everyone is equal, and when correcting the wrongs of the past, we don't take rights from any other group.

For sure, we don't scapegoat our people for the mistakes of immatirity, neopotism, and patronage.

WOMEN'S HISTORY

Throughout Women's History Month, we celebrate the contributions of women. While it's important to celebrate women's history during the other 11 months, too, during March we can remember the sacrifices made by women, for women to help make the world, and our country, a more inclusive place.

Women's History Month was officially created by Congress in 1987 — but its roots go much deeper, starting with suffragists fighting for women to get the vote in the early 20th century.

Here is why Women's History Month is in March and other facts you might not know about the month-long celebration.

When is Women's History Month?

Women’s History Month is celebrated in March. It started as National Woman's Day, a Feb. 28 meeting of socialists and suffragists in Manhattan in 1909.

In March 1910, German activist Clara Zetkin suggested that International Women's Day be recognized as an international holiday at the International Conference of Working Women in Copenhagen — and all 17 countries in attendance at the conference agreed.

How did it become a month-long celebration?

The holiday wasn't widely celebrated in America until the United Nations recognized it in 1975. Later that decade in California, in order to persuade schools to comply with recently passed Title IX laws, a task force in California created Women's History Week. And, in March 1980, President Jimmy Carter declared that March 8 was officially the start of National Women’s History Week.

By 1987, Congress declared the entire month of March Women’s History Month.

Important Dates During Women's History Month

Although Women's History Month celebrations take place all throughout March, there are some dates that are significant.

International Women's Day still takes place on March 8.

On March 13, 1913, the Women’s Suffrage Parade in Washington, D.C., took place, where more than 8,000 women gathered to demand a constitutional amendment guaranteeing their right to vote.

On March 22, 1972, the Equal Rights Amendment was passed in the Senate.

Why do we celebrate Women's History Month?

Women’s History Month is a time to reflect on the courage of women in past generations and to celebrate how their efforts and bravery afforded women the opportunities and freedoms they have today.

It also is a great time to celebrate women who make a difference in your life: perhaps a mom, grandmother, sister, teacher, boss or mentor. Without the efforts of women from generations before us, who knows if these influential women in our lives would have had the opportunity to succeed?
