The Oakland teachers union has decided to push back its scheduled one-day strike for a second time. It’s now set for Thursday, April 29, not April 22.
The date is linked to the timing of the much anticipated fact-finding report, which a mediator is expected to release to both sides tomorrow.
The report will officially be made public about 10 days later, after the union and the administration have had one last chance to come to an agreement before the strike. If I happen to get a copy before then, I’ll let you know what’s in it.
The union has also planned informational picketing at schools this Thursday to let families know about the upcoming strike.
