A strike is pending as negotiations are ongoing today between the San Ramon Valley Unified School District and teachers.
Teachers were on the picket line last week, sending a message to the district they are reading to begin an actual strike if a deal does not get reached soon.
In fact, 98 percent of nearly 1,700 teachers in the San Ramon Valley Education Association voted to authorize a strike if they are unable to agree on contract terms with the district.
Yesterday, meetings were held behind closed doors between the union and the district.
Teachers say they want a pay raise, smaller class sizes, and more school nurses.
Teachers are ready to stand up for what they want as they say it’ll provide a better education for students.
The district says they believe strongly that the union and the district want what is best for students and will be able to agree on a solution.
Tonight the community is invited to Dougherty Valley High School to learn more about the contract negotiations, the possible strike, and what teachers are fighting for.
The meeting starts at 7 p.m.
