Villanueva floor maySPRINGFIELD – Senator Villanueva championed legislation that allows charter schools to unionize without being penalized by management of the charter school.

“Employees of charter schools should never be made to feel like their voices do not matter and their teaching is not important,” said Villanueva (D-Chicago). “All teachers play a vital role in the educational success of our state’s students.” 

House Bill 1120 is an initiative of the Chicago Teachers' Union that seeks to ensure that if the staff at a charter school chooses to form a union, the management of the charter school will not interfere. 

 “Ensuring teachers will have equal opportunities, rights and respect is how we can garner a higher amount of qualified and trained teachers across the state,” said Villanueva.

House Bill 1120 passed in the Senate.
