The press release explains the potential value of the company’s products during the upcoming summit:

"...The security films undergo tests with regard to bomb blasts and flying objects. Therefore, they are highly durable and strong enough to shield one’s building from violent attacks or terrorism that people may capitalize on especially with the approaching 2012 G8 Summit Chicago, IL. Using this product will help one retain the integrity of their building and any asset therein."

Wow. The CTU and its radical friends are angry enough about capitalism to resort to terrorist tactics? If only we could get them to be half as upset about the deplorable state of some of Chicago’s failing schools.

But why should union activists be concerned about education, when there are so many radical political causes to join? Teachers unions are big, wealthy special interest groups whose agendas generally have little connection to the welfare of K-12 students.

The sooner the people of Chicago understand that, the sooner they might rally in an effort to save the school system from the CTU and its apologists. The union radicals are opposing a school improvement plan meant to increase opportunities for the students of the city, just because they want to preserve union jobs and dues revenue.

The CTU stands for the enrichment of itself and its members, and perhaps a social/political revolution in the United States. It will not fight for a better school system.

If the people of Chicago want better educational opportunities for their children, they will have to work around this self-serving union.
