 Bargaining Teams for Striking Yuba City Teachers, School District Agree to Meet Tomorrow Yuba Mayor Offers City Hall to Resume Bargaining  -



The bargaining teams for striking Yuba City teachers and the Yuba City Unified School District have agreed to meet tomorrow (Saturday, September 10). Yuba City Mayor John Buckland extended an invitation to both sides to meet tomorrow to resume bargaining at City Hall.  

“We appreciate the offer by Mayor Buckland. We are hopeful that the district is serious about wanting to end this strike,” said Dina Luetgens, president of the 700-member Yuba City Teachers Association. “These new talks are a chance to resolve what’s been a tremendously difficult time for students, parents and teachers. We believe this is a direct result of the tremendous support shown to Yuba City teachers by parents, students, local businesses and community members over the first two days of this strike.”  

She said the YCUSD district will have to make true progress if it really wants to prevent Yuba City teachers from leaving for better pay in neighboring districts, as so many have done in the past few years. Luetgens said the strike activities will continue until a fair and just contract agreement that attracts and retains qualified teachers has been reached.
