YUBA CITY — The Yuba City Teachers Association told the city’s school district Tuesday that it plans to go on strike.

The union is demanding a 13 percent raise, which teachers say would bring them in line with salaries in similar school districts. The district offered a nine percent raise over the next two school years.

“We are deeply disappointed that we still do not have a serious bargaining partner,” a letter to the district from YCTA President Dina Luetgens read.

The district said the news “comes with dismay and disappointment.”

The strike is set to begin Thursday.
