SFUSD Negotiations Move Slowly

Negotiations continue with the San Francisco Unified School District. Though the District does not plan on agreeing to our proposed changes to healthcare benefits, their proposal on salary increases is minimal and barely covers inflation.  The District's most recent counter offer on salaries in early November was a total of 11 percent spread over three years. Our bargaining team thanked the district for their movement forward on wage increases, but told them that we could not settle a contract for 11 percent over three years with no changes in healthcare benefits. We are now working on different counter proposal alternatives to try to reach a fair contract settlement.
