Video from CORE and Labor Beat on history of Chicago teachers' strikes

CORE / Labor Beat (CIMC Repost)

Produced by CORE (the Caucus of Rank and File Educators of the Chicago Teachers Union) and Chicago's Labor Beat. Titled "CTU Strikes: 1968 - 1987", the video was made during the summer of 2012 in conjunction with the four CORE "Successful Chicago Strikes" forums. It is now up and available on YouTube.

The video contains interviews from retired Chicago Teachers Union members who participated in these strikes and historic archival visuals. Here is a 28 minute overview of the 1969-1987 period, as well as a brief summary of the years since then.

The video is available in DVD format from CORE for $10 (a part of this cost goes to build CORE and democracy in the CTU) from CORE
