UPDATE: 5:50 pm September, 12, 2016:
 
The Yuba City Teachers Association and Yuba City Unified School District met again Monday, but without a resolution to the teachers' strike.
 
In a statement, the district said it was hopeful an agreement could be reached and called on the teachers to return to class.
 
The district and teachers met for 16 hours straight over the weekend. But the two sides did not agree to end a teachers' strike.
 

The district issued a statement that says an agreement was within reach on more than one occasion during a long session from Saturday night into Sunday.

District Superintendent Nancy Aaberg says its most recent proposal included an  increase to teacher pay of 11.1 percent over the next two school years. That offer was rejected by the teachers’ union, which is asking for an additional 4 percent raise for last year.

The union says it presented other "concepts" to the district and is awaiting a reply. Their proposal would entail the 4 percent raise for last year, a 7 percent increase for 2016-2017 and 4 percent increase for 2017-2018.

On Friday, Yuba City Mayor John Buckland arranged for the two sides to meet. Neither side had made a proposal since Aug. 24.

According to the teacher's union, its members will picket at 17 school sites starting at 6:30 a.m. Monday. There will also be a rally held at 1 p.m. with parents and community members at the district office.
