The four-day strike is over and teachers will return to their classrooms on Thursday. Even though they reported for duty Tuesday and are willing to work Wednesday, the district has instead chosen to waste an additional $50,000 in unnecessary substitute pay â€“ adding yet one more fallacy to the spurious claim that their actions against La Habraâ€™s teachers are substantiated by fiscal necessity.
Any hope of ending the strike by La Habraâ€™s teachers on Sunday was shattered when La Habra School Superintendent Susan Belenardo refused to move forward on a settlement recommended by experts advising the boardâ€™s and the unionâ€™s negotiators and agreeable to the LHEA bargaining team. La Habra teachers will hit the picket lines again Monday morning, beginning at 7:30 a.m., the fourth day of the strike
â€œLa Habra teachers are on strike and will hit the picket lines beginning at 7:30 a.m. tomorrow morning, December 8. A strike is the last thing La Habraâ€™s teachers want,â€ said LHEA President Danette Brown, â€œbut the average La Habra teacher will lose over $14,000 as a result of the districtâ€™s imposition, and some could lose as much as $20,000.
