New Haven Unified School District Teachers Strike After No Deal Reached with District

After months of negotiations, teachers at New Haven Unified School District in the Bay Area have gone on strike, the East Bay Times and KRON4 report.

The strike was called after the school district and teachers union failed to reach an agreement around teacher salaries and pay scales. The union argues that current salaries are not enough for teachers trying to live in the increasingly expensive Bay Area around San Francisco.

The union and teachers also feel that current budget cuts and offers by the school district represent a change in the districts attitude towards valuing educators as professionals who deserve a livable salary.
