CBS News ^ | June 14, 2013

Chicago Public Schools says its plan to close 50 schools and programs means that it will have to lay off nearly 850 workers.

The number released Friday includes about 550 teachers along with teacher assistants, bus aides, clerks, custodians and security officers. CPS says some of those workers will be eligible to reapply for other jobs. They will be notified in mid-July.

This is the time of year when unions require admins to post potential layoff notices. They usually over reach to keep on the union's safe side. Odds are most of these positions will not be laid off come September.

Should close the schools, burn them down and rebuild...without the unions.

Of course though they’ll receive full pay and pension courtesy of their unions ... maybe.

Gov’t agencies keep unfilled positions in their budgets so when they claim layoffs a good number of them are the positions not real people. I used to work for a union that inflated their “sacrifice” like that all the time.

Well nothing left to do now but gin up the NEA and Unions and go occupy the capital building in Springfield. I seem to recall there is a Gov in Wis. was threatened by vile leftists/unionists yet there has been no teacher layoffs like they screamed about up there in futile derision. All that DemoRat Ill-n_Annoyed tax raisin’ couldn’t save their bacon.

they always talk about “laying off” teachers, etc...but then I notice that most of them get “hired back” later in the summer......do these little gimmicks just get the teachers unemployment?....

Sorry. My bad. I found the add-on. I didn’t allow them so I didn’t know about them.

On the positive side, it will mean more time for the “utes” to hang in da ‘hood and get serious about their gangbanging. More sex, more drugs (sales and use), and more murders without having to take time out for “publik skool”.

The unions have the final say on who stays and who goes. My guess is that only the teachers that die or move during the summer will be terminated (although the dead teachers can still vote Democratic using the cemetery voting clause). Other than that, a lot of classes will have two teachers, sort of like the little girls with two moms....may be a little unnatural but that’ll be what it is.
