New Haven teachers strike: Contract negotiations resume

News

Teachers in the East Bay on Monday will continue negotiations with the New Haven School District in hopes of ending a strike. 

This comes after they were unable to come up with a deal after meeting for several hours on Sunday. 

Educators along with parents and students spent part of their holiday weekend at the Alameda County Office of Education to show support for the teachers on strike. 

The New Haven Teachers Association and the school district have been negotiating a new contract since fall of 2018. 

“We have put an offer on the table that we think continues to demonstrate our respective value of our teachers while keeping us without worsening our current fiscal situation,” said John Mattos, NHUSD PIO. 

The district’s last offer was a 1% raise for next year and a one-time 3% payment as well as another 1% depending on how much money the district could secure from the state, but the teachers union is asking for a 10% raise over the next two school years.
