Last Friday the Fresno Teachers Association's bargaining team participated in its first mediation session with Fresno Unified School District. The 11-hour session ended WITHOUT an agreement. The next mediation session is scheduled for Wednesday, September 6th.
We must be prepared for ALL possibilities. Therefore, to further show the district our resolve and commitment to our profession and students, last night the FTA Executive Board set a FTA strike timeline for the fall semester.
Next Monday, August 21st, the FTA representative council will vote on the next step in the timeline; authorizing the FTA Executive Board to call for a strike vote of the ENTIRE membership IF the district fails to reach agreement with FTA during the mediation process. FTA will exhaust all legal bargaining requirements to settle
before an actual strike, including completing Fact-Finding. 

If this is authorized by our Rep Council, we will start planning a strike VOTE in the coming weeks, and notify our membership of the date, time & location for our first strike vote in almost 40 years.
We will keep you updated. I am ready!
