SFUSD, teachers’ union reach tentative contract agreement

After nearly a year of negotiations, the San Francisco Unified School District and teachers’ union have reached a tentative contract agreement that is considered one of the largest recent tentative contracts for an urban school district in California.

The contract includes a 12 percent pay raise over three years – 4 percent this year, 3 percent next year and 5 percent the following year – for the some 6,000 teachers, paraprofessionals and other educators represented by United Educators of San Francisco, district and union officials said at a news conference Tuesday morning.

Per the tentative agreement, which must still be approved by the Board of Education and voted on by teachers, paraprofessionals who have worked in the district at least eight years will also receive an additional step increment of 3 percent, bringing their three-year salary to 15 percent.

The tentative agreement comes three months after UESF passed its first hurdle to potentially strike. In April, the union had called for a 21-percent pay raise over the next three years, which the district in May countered with a proposed salary boost of 8 percent over three years. An impasse was declared in June.Bay Area NewseducationroboticsSan Francisco Unified School DistrictUESF
