The Strike Is On! La Habra City School District Unwilling To Negotiate, Teachers Taking To The Picket Lines
It happens tomorrow!
As of 7:30 a.m. tomorrow (Wednesday) morning, La Habra school teachers will be on strike, according to Bill Guy, with the La Habra Education Association.
When the two teams met today at 3:30 p.m., LHEA's team offered a comprehensive proposal, but the district responded with a flat "No." Rejecting the fact finder's recommendations and continuing to insist on permanent cuts in salaries and benefits, the district offered no room for compromise beyond their imposition. "It was like rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic," said Brown. "It was soon obvious that instead of intending to bargain, they were only attempting to provide political cover by making it appear that they had responded to the teachers' legitimate offer to negotiate."
