Chicago Strike is disruptive, harmful–and illegal

The teachers union strike in Chicago is disrupting kids and their families in Chicago, but did you know that it is also illegal?    In Illinois, teachers are permitted to strike for higher wages but not over policies set by the Chicago Board of Education–which is what this strike about.  Think about that when unionists tell you that there is no harm unionizing critical national security workers because strikes of federal workers are illegal.  As we discuss in Shadowbosses, the head of the PATCO air traffic controllers union said during that illegal strike of federal workers, “the only illegal strike is an unsuccessful one.”
