The Chicago Teachers Union (CTU) has a long history representing educators of Chicago. The union was established in 1937 when several competing teacher’s unions merged into one larger union, and its roots include the Chicago Teachers Foundation that was established in 1897 to represent the interest of women teachers. There have been four major strikes by the union, the most recent in 2012. Currently the union represents over 25,000 teachers and paraprofessionals working in the Chicago Public School system.
