Sacramento teachers will be back on the picket line again today as the strike in the Sacramento City Unified school district enters its fourth day.
The Sacramento City Unified School District met with the Sacramento City Teachers Association for the first time on Sunday since thousands of teachers and staff went on strike last week. Negotiations continue to try and find common ground for demands given by teachers and staff of the district to have better pay and staffing shortage issues addressed. The district also continued talks with the local SEIU 1021 Chapter.
"The Sacramento City Unified School District (SCUSD) and SCTA continued to make progress in negotiations, and worked well into the evening on Sunday. We will meet on Monday with SCTA and we are scheduled to meet with SEIU at 10:00 am on Monday, " the district said in a press release Sunday night. The union representing classified staff slammed SCUSD over the weekend after its meeting Sunday morning, saying the district showed up to the bargaining table unprepared.
The district has said its proposal to SEIU 1021 includes a 2% ongoing salary increase that would reportedly go into effect on July 1, 2022.
