Sac City Schools Classified Staff Went on Strike & Won Big!

“When we fight, we win! When we fights, students win!” was the mantra for the eight workdays (and twelve calendar days) of the Sacramento City Unified School District strike.

STRIKE OVER! We Have Reached a Tentative Agreement!
When We Fight, We Win. WE WON OUR STRIKE.

From the first day of our strike with SCTA on Wednesday, March 23, our mantra has been, “When we fight, we win. When we fight, students win.” You kept on showing up to the picket lines and our rallies day after day. You kept on sharing your stories, and the community kept on supporting us and demanding the superintendent and school board do their jobs. We are so happy to announce that our strike is over.

STRIKE UPDATE:  We’re Getting Close, and It’s Because of You!
Thanks to You, We Are Winning

Once again, you showed up and spoke out. You have kept on showing up to the picket lines morning after morning, even though you were exhausted and worried about how you were going to make rent. You came to the rally and made your voices heard, on stage, in the crowd, on the sidewalks, on social media, and to reporters and TV cameras. You shared your stories: the love and heart you put into the work you do. How hard it is to do your job–and how you wouldn’t want to do anything else–you just want basic dignity and respect at work.
