Art Builds and Negotiations Update

Art Builds!
A reminder that our first strike-ready art build will be this Saturday, April 23 from 10am-2pm at the San Jose Teachers Association offices (5444 Thornwood Drive San Jose, CA 95123).

We have also confirmed the location of our Oakland art build on Saturday, April 30 from 10am-2pm at the Oakland Education Association offices (272 E. 12th St., Oakland, CA 94606).


We are so excited to launch this in-person community event and we would love for as many folks from our school communities (and beyond!) to attend as possible, from those who are artistically inclined to those who want to grow in their creativity and want to do so in community. Kids are welcome! So please join us! And, to keep our community safe, please wear a mask.

Fact Finding Update
The Public Employment Relations Board has appointed a “neutral” (see here for a reminder of the steps of the process). This begins the 30 day period for the release of the fact-finding report, after which we can legally strike. We are hoping to settle our contract during the fact finding process — our remaining demands are extremely reasonable — but are also continuing to prepare for a potential strike. We will keep you updated as the process continues.
