Teachers Strike Enters Day 2

Teachers Strike Enters Day 2

As the Calaveras Teachers strikes continues into its second day, Calaveras teachers are back on the picket lines after talks Wednesday failed to settle a fair contract for teachers.    According to Calaveras Unified Educators’ Association (CUEA) President Lorraine Angel, negotiators for the Teacher’s union thought they had a deal on Wednesday, and came in ready to settle on what they had heard from Superintendent Campbell and the school board and it didn’t happen.   The teachers are striking over class size, safety concerns and a salary increase that CUEA hopes will help attract and retain qualified teachers to the Calaveras district.   Angel added, the Teacher’s Union has done its homework and if the district couldn’t afford it, we wouldn’t propose it.   CUEA members, supporters and parents are canvassing the community this afternoon, handing out leaflets urging people to call the District office and School Board members urging them to negotiate a fair contract for teachers.  With no negotiation scheduled this weekend, the District says that parents will receive a communication no later than Sunday afternoon regarding school on Monday.
