Latest teachers strike launched in Oakland, California


February 25, 2019

(Reuters) - Some 3,000 teachers in Oakland, California, walked off the job on Thursday in a contract dispute over salaries, class size and a proposal to close two dozen schools, the latest in a series of strikes by U.S. educators that began last year.

The Oakland Unified School District vowed to keep schools open during the strike, saying it will use central office employees, principals and temporary emergency teachers to conduct classes for the district’s 37,000 students.
