California teachers say announcement on strike coming
OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - The union representing teachers in Oakland, California, says it will make an announcement Saturday about a potential strike, a day after a neutral fact-finding report was to be issued.
The Oakland teachers' union could announce Saturday whether its 7,000 members will strike after negotiating with the Oakland Unified School District for more than a year and a half.
A report containing compromise recommendations from a neutral third-party was expected Friday.
Oakland schools spokesman John Sasaki told the San Francisco Chronicle that the district hopes the report will jumpstart negotiations.
But Chaz Garcia, a leader with the Oakland Education Association, told the newspaper that members are not waiting for another offer from the district based on the report.
Garcia says the union will assess the report and decide what to do.
