SF Teachers and Paras Fight For Your Rights! UESF Workers Demand A Living Wage

San Francisco public school teachers, paras and education
staff who are members of United Educators of San Francisco
UESF rallied on April 22, 2014 at the SFUSD school board
for a 21% wage increase and for increased support of services and
para-professionals. After the rally workers spoke out at the
board meeting. The massive speculative housing bubble
according to teachers is driving teachers, paras and
educational staff out of San Francisco and forcing them to
commute large distances.

Teachers and education workers have not had a raise in 8 years
and many are being pushed out of San Francisco as well as being
unable to afford healthcare for their families. They and their
students in poorer Black and Latino schools also face workplace
bullying by the San Francisco Unified School District officials and
encouraged by the members of the Board of Education who vote
to give millions to privatizers and more testing in the schools.
UESF and SEIU 1021 workers who have spoken out against bullying
against education staff and students have been retaliated against
forcing them out of the school and the district ending their careers.
The district is also spending tens of millions of dollars on consultants and
privatization schemes while starving the schools in the poor areas
of San Francisco and forcing education workers to live on poverty
wages in a city with 27 billionaires.
