YCUSD News Release

September 9, 2016

YCUSD is grateful to Yuba City Mayor John Buckland for coordinating a meeting between representatives of our school district and the leadership of the teachers union. We welcome and accept the mayor’s invitation to meet, and hope it will result in the kind of productive dialogue that can lead to a long-term solution that will benefit our community.

We continue to believe that resolving this impasse will require an innovative solution that focuses on the future.

A multi-year approach allows our community to access special-purpose funds and to increase teacher pay while protecting student services and support programs.

In recent media reports, YCTA leadership has stated they are interested in renewed negotiations. We hope this means union leadership has developed a proposal or counter-proposal they wish to share with us. We would welcome this development and would be eager to discuss it.
