Notes On Oakland Teachers Strike

Notes on Oakland Teachers Strike
By Peter Shapiro

1. The Oakland Education Association (OEA) demands: 12% pay hike over 3 years, more support staff (nurses, counselors, speech pathologists & resource specialists), smaller classes & no more school closures.

2. The Oakland Unified School District (OUSD) teachers are so badly paid that many can’t afford to live here. Class size is also an issue. As a result, teacher turnover is extremely high — 500 out of 3000 left the district last year. This is a sore spot with students, who have several organized one-day sympathy strikes in recent weeks. They’re sick of seeing good teachers leave.

3. District has a lot of high needs kids — special ed, kids in foster care, immigrant kids who are still learning English (“newcomers”). Proliferation of charter schools (which enroll a far smaller proportion of these kids) has increased the burden on regular schools. More support staff badly needed, for the kids and their teachers.

PSE Career Opportunity Update

PSE Members:

I have been advised by In-Plant-Support that all previously unassigned regular clerks have been assigned to a duty assignment, and that there are 16 residual vacancies. Accordingly, the Oakland Local APWU will be working diligently to get PSEs converted to career status as soon as possible, and to have the conversions effectuated in compliance with the Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) with an accurate PSE seniority list.

President
