My name is Tammie Vinson, incumbent Trustee seeking consideration for a full-term, elected representative of the Chicago Teachers Pension Fund Trustee vacancy. I was appointed to the fund in February, 2023. Concurrently, I have served four (4) terms as a Trustee of the CTU, two of those terms as the Chairperson.
I have worked within this body
- to review the finances of the union
- refine processes improving internal operations,
- make fiduciarily responsible budgetary decisions
- to present budget recommendations to the delegates annually.
I have served on several committees
- Human Rights
- Climate Justice

- Rules and Elections
As the President of the AFT Chicago Black Caucus, I have coordinated several educator and community focused forums, instituted the Future Black Educators Scholarship and facilitated topical discussion based on culturally and academically relevant books and movies.
I have the experience and skills needed to represent the interest of all educators who are relying on our defined benefit, a Pension. Since I was appointed to the fund, I have participated in numerous training sessions which have broadened my understanding of the role of a responsible fiduciary. I will be steadfast in promoting environmental, social, and governance (ESG) investments. We have worked hard for our money and I will work even harder to protect it.
