Oakland strike endsas teachers OK deal

Mar 04, 2019 - The San Francisco Chronicle

Oakland teachers ended their seven-day strike Sunday and will return to schools Monday after approving a new contract that won them salary increases and concessions on class sizes and staff workloads.

"We look forward to being in our classrooms again after having to strike to bring our Oakland students some of the resources and support they should have had in the first place," Keith Brown, president of the teachers union, the Oakland Education Association, said in a statement.
