CBS SF: New Haven Teachers return to work after 14 day strike

New Haven Unified School District teachers voted 302-200 Sunday night to end their strike and accept the districts latest offer, according to CBS San Francisco.

The new contract will give teachers a 4% raise over the 2018-19 and 2019-20 school years, a 2.5% bonus for the current year, and a potential for a 1% increase should the district have higher than expected revenue. The agreement also allows retiring teachers to count the 2018-19 school year as a full year of service credit.

Though they are returning, teachers still feel betrayed by the school district and that they are being made to pay to fix other people's mistakes. Still, the union has made clear that this first strike in the districts history is only the beginning of their organizing for their membership.
