Yuba City teachers to march into YCUSD Board meeting

posted Aug 27, 2013, 6:52 AM by Yuba City Teachers Association
Attached is a press release from Yuba City Teachers Association.  We will gather at the YCUSD District Office tomorrow evening beginning at 5:15 PM  and address the School Board at 5:30 PM.  We are frustrated by the lack of progress in negotiations especially in regard to the significant discrepancy in teachers' salaries between Marysville and Yuba City and as compared to state averages. (A first year teacher in Marysville is paid 12% higher than in Yuba City while the top salary in Marysville is 16% higher.)  We know that comparable salaries attract and retain the highest quality educators.  We simply want to be valued and respected by our own district.
