Posted 8/5/22

The Hayward Unified School District has reached a tentative agreement with the Hayward Education Association (HEA) on a retroactive compensation adjustment for the 2021-22 academic year. HEA will place the agreement before its membership for a ratification vote.

The Hayward Education Association represents approximately 1,200 certificated teachers including specialized teachers, teachers on special assignment, English language specialists, counselors, speech therapists, psychologists, nurses, occupational therapists, and behaviorists. . 

The tentative agreement stipulates that HEA members receive a seven-percent (7%) salary increase for the 2021-22 school year. It would take effect following HEA ratification and school board approval.

The District and HEA both recognize how hard our staff worked last year in ensuring that our students were well supported and cared for as they return to in person learning.

“We appreciate the opportunity to work with our labor partners to reach a tentative agreement”, said Interim Superintendent Chien Wu-Fernandez.  “Our educators faced unique challenges last year as we returned to campuses in the middle of a pandemic. It is important that we recognize their hard work, dedication, and commitment.”
