Thousands of Oakland Education Association OEA members and OUSD staff discussed the proposed contract on 3/3/19 as they lined up and waited to vote on the proposed contract.

Many were also concerned that the school board will seek to pay for the wage increase by cutting SEIU and AFSCME service staff.

Also, students, parents and community supporters discussed the conditions in the classrooms and what their views were on the contract.

Other teachers were angry that charters continue to open while the school district is closing public community schools siphoning off money from public education.

Teachers and parents talked about the power of the strike and how it had galvanized the community to defend public education.
