Logan High & The Battle For Public Education: New Haven Teachers Face Union Busting
by Labor Video Project
Friday Jun 7th, 2019 4:32 PM
New Haven Teaches Association members are interviewed at Logan High School at Union City on their 13th day on strike in the district. They discuss their fight to defend public education and union busting by the trustees and management.
After 13 days of strike action on June 6, 2019, New Haven teachers from Logan High who are members of the New Haven Teachers Association talk about the lessons of their strike and why they are fighting for the future of public education.
Teachers report that they are not getting living wages and cannot have families because of housing costs. The state of California is providing the district 3.5% COLA increase for two years but the management refuse to put that into the salaries of the teachers and this is not required under state law.

Some teachers have moved back into homes with their parents because of the explosion in housing costs. The average in Union City are $800,000. Some discuss why they are leaving the district.

Steve Zeltzer of KPFA WorkWeek also interviews some students have supporting the teachers on the picket line.
