Fall Opening-Message from John Minkus


I know many of you watched last night’s Board Meeting. Many of the items discussed will need to be negotiated prior to implementation. I have called a Rep Council meeting for Monday to discuss the issues at hand. We have a meeting scheduled with the district for Wednesday to discuss the details. We have already presented them with talking points in regard to reopening. Dr. Aponik, our CTA staff person will support us in these efforts. We understand that there are more questions than answers at this point and must rely on the local, state, and federal agencies for direction. Your bargaining team and executive board are tirelessly working on your behalf yet as with all decisions in a unit as large as ours, not all will be satisfied. I continue to do my best to answer all your questions. Please share your thoughts and concerns with your site rep(s) to bring to our meeting.
