Pritzker expands Chicago Teachers Union power

JB Pritzker aka Fat Blagojevich

Good old JB is batting a thousand these days. As if the Chicago Teachers Union doesn’t already have enough power in the city the wise sage that is JB Pritzker decides to up the ante.

The Chicago Teachers Union is lauding Gov. J.B. Pritzker for restoring its ability to bargain with the city over issues including class sizes, staff assignments and subcontracting.

Pritzker signed a bill Friday that repealed a section of the Illinois Educational Labor Relations Act that has restricted the union’s bargaining power since 1995.

Illinoisans should not forget the Democrat controlled general assembly are the stooges passing this legislation. They are deep in the pockets of the public employee labor unions.
