More California Teacher Unions Strike

Two more Bay area school districts are undergoing the strain of teacher union strikes over negotiating monopoly bargaining contracts.  It’s just another example of how monopoly bargaining restricts teachers from negotiating their own conditions of employment, deprives students of their education and makes a mockery of parents trust.

Joseph Geha has the story in the East Bay Times.

Nearly 600 teachers, counselors, nurses, psychologists and speech therapists represented by the New Haven Teachers Association started to picket outside their schools around 7 a.m.

The work stoppage is the first in the district’s 50-plus year history, sparked by what union officials say is a shift by district leadership away from a tradition of prioritizing teachers.
