From OEA President Keith Brown: Today we received a bargaining proposal from the district, which our bargaining team has reviewed. While we believe this proposal continues to fall short of reinvesting in our schools at the levels our students deserve, our bargaining team has agreed to meet with the district’s negotiators tomorrow morning to review it together and ask clarifying questions. We will bring you a bargaining update after the meeting. In the meantime stay united, and continue your preparations to walk the line for the schools our students deserve.

“Unless there are dramatic changes to the district’s approach, including spending more money on students, nurses and counsellors, lower class size and a living wage that will keep Oakland teachers in Oakland classrooms, we will strike on…
OEA is going on strike starting February 21st. We are fighting to win smaller class sizes and SPED caseloads, fair teacher salaries, more support staff in schools for students, and no school closures. We need your help!
