Oakland Teachers Want 15 Percent Raise

In a time of widespread pay cuts and historic unemployment, the Oakland teachers’ union is asking for a 15 percent raise over three years. The Trib reports that the union wants five percent salary schedule increases in each of the next three years. The union announced yesterday that it had rejected the latest contract proposal from the school district that included no pay raises, calling it “unconscionable.” The move brings the union one step closer to a strike.
