Crossing Guards Gain Healthcare in New Agreement


The City of Chicago Crossing Guards have a new agreement with the Board of Education of the City of Chicago. One of the biggest gains for the Crossing Guards is healthcare coverage including optional long-term disability, optional health and dental benefits, and supplemental retirement.

“It’s been a long road since the crossing guards were moved under CPS,” said Jeff Howard, Executive Vice President. “Securing healthcare for all our workers is a huge victory.”

Crossing guards will also have leave of absence coverage including short-term disability and maternity leave, military leave, bereavement leave, jury duty, court attendance, election leave, leave to attend conferences, report card pick up, family and medical leave, and personal days.
