- one The Chicago Teachers’ Union earned a double-digit increase in salary over the next three years, which — while not including the jump in base pay they were hoping for, will help teachers’ costs of living over the next few years.
- two The union also got the city to agree to limit how far a new teacher-evaluation system goes in using standardized testing as a key factor. The city wanted it to count for 40 percent of the evaluation; the union talked it down to 30 percent.
- three The union also secured a recall policy in the case of closing schools, offering 12 weeks pay or 40 weeks in the reassignment pool to teachers waiting to find new jobs. If there is an opening at the school where their students were reassigned, the teachers can follow those students. source
