Cook County College teachers win strike; then bosses fire 140 workers who honored the picket line "The strike by the CCCTU (Local 1600 of the American Federation of Teachers, the parent union of the 36,000-member Chicago Teachers Union) was contentious from the beginning. The City Colleges administration, represented by the controversial law firm of Franczek Sullivan PC (the same firm that represented the Chicago Board of Education at a cost of more than $1 million in last year’s negotiations) began harassing strikers and their supporters from the beginning of the strike October 17 and has continued to do so since the strike ended November 7."
