New Haven teachers strike stretches into 2nd week

Bay Area

Teachers with the New Haven School District will be out at least through Wednesday as the two sides are not meeting today. 

The district and teachers did meet on Monday but reached no agreement. 

The teachers are backing off from their 10% pay raise demand to now willing to take 7%. 

But they want a cost of living adjustment. 

The district is now offering a 2% pay raise up from their 1% position last week, but the teachers union claims it’s just a creative way of still sticking to the 1% raise because of how it would be spread. 

The district will now have to scramble as there are about two weeks left in the school year and students still need to take their final exams.
