YUBA CITY TEACHERS REACH TENTATIVE AGREEMENT

WITH YUBA CITY UNIFIED SCHOOL DISTRICT

 

A STEP TOWARD BUILDING PARTNERSHIPS FOR THE FUTURE


WE THANK OUR COMMUNITY 

FOR THEIR ON-GOING SUPPORT AND LOOK FORWARD TO THE FUTURE.


 Thanks in large part to the tremendous support of the Yuba City community, Yuba City Teachers Association and Yuba City Unified School District settled their ongoing contract dispute. 

Yuba City teachers have been asking our District to value and respect us.   Yuba City teachers were asking for a fair contract that provides comparable salaries. We know that comparable salaries attract and retain the best teachers for our students. Our students and our community deserve the highest quality teachers. 

We have reached a tentative agreement that moves us much closer to the state average in salary for teachers.  Equally important was contract language that continues to protect our profession and values our training, experience and education.

Bargaining Chair Steve Jennings commented, “We are pleased that both sides worked together to reach a resolution that values the work of our members.  We hope that we can begin to build a climate of respect and trust.”

The support of our community has assured teachers that we are respected and valuable partners in our community to educate the children of Yuba City. Teachers will continue to ask our community to engage with us in partnership to educate the children of Yuba City.

This agreement will allow Yuba City to take full advantage of an historic opportunity in California education. The Local Control Funding Formula brings decision making to the local level for state money for public education. Developing a collaborative partnership between our parents, community, teachers and the District will be one of the highest priorities for the Yuba City Teachers Association.  YCTA President Dina Luetgens said, “Together, we will all play a role in constructing a local plan that addresses the needs of students in Yuba City.  YCTA looks forward to your continued support and involvement in this new era of education.”
