Chicago Mayor

Brandon Johnson
Mayor of Chicago

Brandon Johnson has been a strong advocate for union members in Cook County. In 2011 Brandon joined the resurgent Chicago Teachers Union as an organizer. Brandon helped to organize the monumental 2012 CTU strike and fought against the onslaught of closings and privatization in Black and Latinx schools. In 2015 Brandon led field campaigns that forced an historic mayoral runoff and 18 aldermanic runoffs in the city of Chicago. Most recently, Brandon has coordinated coalition campaigns with parent and community organizations to pass state legislation for an elected representative school board, stronger oversight of private charter operators, restoring collective bargaining rights for teachers and an elimination of tax breaks and slush funds for the 1%.
