East Bay teachers enter 3rd day of strike

The teachers in the New Haven School District are not backing down from their demand of a pay raise. 

It does not appear the teachers plan to meet with the district any time soon. 

The teachers want a 10% pay raise, but the district is offering 1% for the next school year. 

This is the first time the teachers in the district – which covers Union City and south Hayward – have gone on strike in its 50 years. 

The school district has substitute teachers and administrators to be with students at this time while the teachers are on strike, but we are hearing attendance is a small fraction of a normal day and they’re not being taught what they normally would because of the strike, making things harder for the parents and students caught in the middle as it is near the end of the year and there are upcoming finals.
