What is the difference between Local 1211 and the Teachers' Council?

Local 1211 is the umbrella organization that embodies the 5 other councils, including the Teachers Council, TIE, United Support Staff Council, Itasca Support Staff, and the Retirees Chapter. Local 1211 is part of the Illinois Federation of Teachers (IFT), which is part of the American Federation of Teachers (AFT).  The Teachers Council's main responsibility is to uphold the integrity of the contract between the Teachers Union and the Board of Education. Malcolm Jenkins Jersey
