Seeing Red

Next week our bargaining team will be trying to negotiate with the district. Despite their best efforts the process has been frustratingly slow and ineffective. Fortunately the funding excuse crumbling. Money is pouring back to education and looks to be increasing in years to come. Marysville has settled and we expect to see districts all over the state restoring years of cuts to pay and benefits. Still, in Yuba City we are at a virtual standstill.


Hopefully, the fact that the next bargaining session is on Valentine’s day will move the process along. However, just in case, we are asking that each YCTA member wear red Thursday, February 14 in support of our bargaining teams efforts. We understand that time is valuable and that many members who want to be supportive can’t make it out to major events. On Valentine’s day we can all show support for our bargaining team by wearing red.
