Teacher "Sick-Out" OUSD Teachers Sick and Tired of being Sick and Tired

OAKLAND, Calif. - Dec. 9, 2018 - PRLog -- On Monday December 10th, 2018 teachers from Fremont High School will join in with teachers across Oakland Unified School District (OUSD) in a "sick-out". This looks like multiple teachers from multiple schools calling in "sick" on Monday morning. We are doing this to demand that OUSD prioritize teacher retention and access to student supports in order to maximize student success.  We are also doing this to put pressure on the district to give them a taste of what our teacher strike will look like in the new year. Tomorrow, educators, students and community members will rally at Oakland City Hall, 1 Frank H. Ogawa Plaza Oakland, CA 94612, at 10:30 am.

Why are teachers ready to strike? For nearly 2 years, the Oakland Education Association has been bargaining with Oakland Unified School District for:

● A living wage so experienced teachers remain teaching in Oakland

● Smaller class sizes

● More student supports (nurses, counselors, psychologists, speech pathologists     and resource specialists)

Although the district had a 30 million dollar surplus last year, it is claiming it cannot afford to make these improvements and invest in the success of OUSD students.

We are not willing to wait another 2 years. There are no schools without quality teachers. Many OUSD quality teachers will be "sick" tomorrow. Oakland teachers are demand better for our students who deserve it.
