Oakland Teachers Strike April 29th
Students and Community Show Solidarity with Oakland Teachers on One-Day Strike
After having worked for over two years without a contract, Oakland teachers watched the Oakland Unified School Board unilaterally impose a labor contract on April 21st. The new contract largely ignores the recommendations of a recent fact-finding panel, allows for no pay raises for teachers, increases class sizes, lays off teachers, and threatens adult education programs. The teacher's union, the Oakland Educator Association, called for a one-day city-wide strike on April 29th to defend and strengthen public education and to fight for a fair labor contract.

Oakland teachers, students, and community members picketed at neighborhood public schools from 6am-11am, then marched and rallied at Frank Ogawa Plaza in downtown Oakland at 12 noon. The Oakland Unified School District administration building at 2nd Ave and 10th St in Oakland was picketed as well.
