YCTA: We have a legally protected right to participate in a strike ...

There is a buzz.  Social media spreads news fast.  You may have seen this...

Yes.  The YCUSD Board approved this resolution.  The  resolution is misleading and appears to a scare tactic to discourage our members and the community.  

YCTA has engaged in legal activities to advocate for our members, our students, and our community including gathering on the sidewalks around our schools to engage in informational picketing.  If at the completion of the bargaining process no agreement has been reached, YCTA may engage in a legally protected activity - a strike.  A strike is legally protected activity after the completion of fact finding. 

Please refer to your strike Q&A from our site visits.  During a strike, YCTA members will not report to work.  Your participation in the strike is a legally protected right and you may not be disciplined, dismissed or arrested for participating in this legally protected activity.

The District's continuing tactics of disrespect for teachers is heart breaking.  We have dedicated ourselves to our work with students and they disparage us with these resolutions.  So sad.

Stay Strong,
