All Tech community members are encouraged to attend an important informational meeting — Tuesday, Feb. 12, from 7 to 9 PM, in the library — regarding the impact on Oakland Tech of a potential teacher strike. Teachers and administrators will discuss plans and answer questions. Translators will be available to support community and family members who need translation services.
Quick background: Last week, teachers voted to authorize their union, Oakland Education Association (OEA), to call a strike if negotiations with OUSD break down. OEA and OUSD are awaiting a fact-finding report and recommended proposal by an independent panel which is examining the district’s books. That report will be issued on Feb. 15.
