Teachers, employees protest health plan

Teachers and classified employees protested outside Daly City's Jefferson Elementary School District offices Monday after it was revealed that a new Kaiser Health Plan offered would increase some families’ costs by several hundred dollars. The district and the teachers’ union will hold their first state-mediated meeting today after they went to impasse during negotiations for a new contract. The sticking point for the two sides is health benefits. The union would like the district to increase the portion it pays monthly for each teacher by $50 to ease the burden.
