Who we are

We are teachers who have waited long enough

We are teachers, counselors, and other school workers at Oakland High School in Oakland, California. We have worked without a contract for more than a year.

We are prepared to strike if and when our union makes that choice.

Until then, we will carry out our own wildcat actions to spur the Oakland Unified School District to negotiate in good faith with our union.

Our actions

Our first action was an Educators' Day Out work stoppage on Monday, Dec. 10, 2018.

On Dec. 11, we joined with the Oakland Education Association's Hour of Power event at the intersection of Grand and Lake Park Avenues.

On the evening of Dec. 20, we went holiday caroling in our community with songs of protest and hope.

On Jan. 18, we joined with teachers, students, and families from at least eight other schools in our second "wildcat strike."

Although we are all, individually, members of the Oakland Education Association, our Wildcat Underground actions are not sanctioned by the OEA.
