Dear supporter of the Chicago Teachers Union,

Here is the information on how supporters can donate to buy lunch for
the striking Chicago teachers:

You can show your solidarity with striking Chicago teachers by
donating to pay for their lunch.  For however long the strike lasts,
striking Chicago Teachers Union activists and supporters will meet at
their strike headquarters after morning picket lines and before a mass
picket downtown in the afternoon.

The Chicago Teachers Solidarity Campaign has made arrangements with
Primo’s pizza, a locally owned and teacher-friendly restaurant near
the strike HQ, to deliver pizza, pasta, and salads.  You can help
defer the up to $1,000 a day cost by calling Primo’s and asking them
to take a donation with your credit card.  At the conclusion of the
strike, any unused funds will go toward the ongoing campaign to defend
public education and fight for an elected school board in Chicago.
(Consider pooling donations with others and making just one phone

Call Gus or Daisy at Primo’s Pizza at (312) 243-1052.  Primo’s is at
816 W Van Buren Street, Chicago. Open 11 am to 9 pm Monday through
Friday, but try not to call during lunch rush 11:45 to 1:15.

If you have friends in other cities, please also forward the
attachment to help build nationwide solidarity for the Chicago
Teachers Union.   (This flyer has been approved by CTU.)
