TK-8 teachers in San Rafael may strike over pay dispute
San Rafael City Schools TK-8 teachers have overwhelmingly voted to strike if their union and the school district can’t come to an agreement on pay raises.
The district and union remain at an impasse after a state-appointed mediator could not resolve the dispute. Before there is a strike, a three-member state fact-finding panel will attempt to resolve the conflict.
The school district has offered teachers a 4.7% pay increase, according to a press release from the union. It did not say how much more teachers are requesting, but asked for equity citing higher pay for high school teachers in the district.
