Pleasant Valley teachers protest wage drought

Teachers at Pleasant Valley High School staged protests before school Thursday morning, claiming they have not had a pay increase in seven years.

Nearly 100 teachers gathered outside the school, picketing and threatening to strike if the Chico Unified School District fails to meet their wage demands.

Teachers say over the past seven years, teacher salaries have not increased to match the cost of living expenses. Teachers say the district has offered a 2 percent increase, but the teachers are looking for more.

Teachers say until the issue is resolved teachers say they will only work their contractually obligated hours, and told Action News Now they would prefer not to go on strike, but it has not been ruled out.
