On Monday, March 19, teachers at Alameda public schools, who are also members of the teachers’ union, Alameda Education Association (AEA), members gathered at the 1400 Bar & Grill. They were preparing for a march down Webster Street and on to Island High School on Pacific Avenue, where the school board was meeting.

The Alameda Unified School District (AUSD) and the Alameda Education Association (AEA) reached a tentative agreement on June 8 to end a negotiation process that was almost declared an impasse.

The 11th-hour deal was struck after both sides decided to have one last meeting before both sides declared they would walk away from the negotiation table and request the Public Employment Relations Board declare an impasse (“Teacher’s Union at Odds with School District” June 9.)
