Letter: New Haven teachers fighting for lower pay doesn’t bode well

Teachers battle for lower
pay doesn’t bode well

Re: “Tentative deal reached in 14-day strike” (Page B1, June 10):

After three weeks, the New Haven Unified School District’s (Union City-South Hayward) teacher strike has finally come to an end.

The result: My colleagues and I “won” a 4% raise over two years (after having been offered no raise at all).

Thus, once again, our salaries will not keep pace with the local inflation rate of 3.4% per year.

Oh, the irony of teachers having to fight to earn even lower pay! This does not bode well for the teaching profession, public schools, our children or our nation.
