FACING A CRISIS of affordable housing that threatens to push educators out of the city, United Educators of San Francisco’s 6,200 teachers, early childhood educators, paraprofessionals, nurses and social workers negotiated an 11 percent pay increase over three years, as well as annual bonuses. The overall compensation package will grow to 16 percent if voters approve a parcel tax that city leaders hope to place on the ballot in 2018.

The contract also offers professional development to a wider range of school employees, focused on priority areas that include children who have suffered trauma, alternative disciplinary measures, and providing a more inclusive environment for children with learning challenges.
