SHARE Board of Ed seeks invalidation of CTU’s strike authorization vote: report

The Chicago Board of Education wants the Illinois Educational Labor Relations Board to deem the Chicago Teachers Union’s vote to authorize a strike invalid, according to the Chicago Tribune.

From the Chicago Tribune: The Chicago Teachers Union said last week that 88 percent of eligible members authorized union leaders to call a strike, well above the 75 percent threshold required before a walkout. The union has maintained it could call for a strike authorization vote at any time during talks to replace a contract that expired June 30. The school board disputes the union’s position in a memo attorney James Franczek sent last week to the Illinois Educational Labor Relations Board. The board says the union can’t vote on a strike until contract talks have gone through a final stage known as fact-finding, which has yet to begin. A vote taken prior to conclusion of mediation, prior to issuance of the fact-finder’s report, prior to exchange of comprehensive proposals is indicative of nothing, Franczek wrote.
