California Faculty Association announces support for Calaveras Teachers, new tentative agreement

Sacramento — The California Faculty Association congratulates the Calaveras Unified Educators’ Association (CUEA), which announced today that after four days of teachers striking, a tentative agreement with the Calaveras Unified School District has been reached.

The California Faculty Association has supported CUEA in its strike and unyielding efforts to improve teachers’ working conditions and student learning conditions.

The following statement may be attributed to Jennifer Eagan, President of CFA:

“The California Faculty Association and our 28,000 members have stood beside the Calaveras Unified Educators Association throughout their efforts to secure a fair contract, and we’re happy to see the strike end with a settlement that includes the improvements for our union colleagues. We know that students taught by Calaveras teachers become our students in the California State University system, and the hard work their teachers do in the classroom helps prepare our future students for success in the CSU. We are proud to be united with Calaveras teachers, and congratulate them in their efforts to improve the lives and working conditions of their members, and learning conditions for their students.”
