The Sacramento City Teacher strike is over this morning and schools across the district are reopening.
Union leaders and district officials struck a deal over the weekend, and issued a statement saying they are satisfied with the deal but members must still review the terms of the agreement. "We are so happy and grateful to share that we have reached agreements with our labor partners and SEIU and SCTA have suspended their labor strike," SCUSD said in a letter to families. "We've prepared social emotional learning strategies to support our school community as we recover from the impacts of school closures."
The agreement reached includes an ongoing 4% salary increase for SCTA and SEIU staff, as well as the district saying it will fully pay health coverage through Kaiser and other alternative plans for staff, currently still Health Net. Additional details on the agreement from the district can be found here.
