>> rain all week long. the teachers unions have really just kind of begged and demanded that the san francisco unified school district meet with them again at the bargaining table. they said, please do it now, please to now, don't wait till thursday. only to later, but it never happened there waiting to get back to the bargaining table because they want their covid protocols. their agreement on paper. they want to move forward because that kind of have to right to have to go to the classroom teach and the class must go on. now, let's recap what both sides asked and what was offered they met last week. the teachers union is asking for 10 paid sick days for all covid-related reasons. >> but the district came back offering 5 days. the teachers want the district to provide enough kn 95 mask with those better mask for every student and employee each day, the district says they have been providing masks will continue to do so. but mostly for employees, the district and the union have agreed weekly covid testing needs to be at
every district site for all students and staff. we've seen that so far in the last week. the teachers union has put a petition of online asking people to get involved as families. anybody please sign it. asking all of the teachers unions to please have everyone of testing kits saying they've distributed over 60,000 at home kids to k through 12 students along with 10's of thousands of can then 5 masks and surgical mask. the teachers union eu esf posted this photo, though, of a box of tests saying, quote, when your school has 45 staff members and nearly 300 students, but the sf unified, send you 12 test. total question mark. make it make sense. so it seems are the districts providing testing in mass. but the teachers union does not believe it's enough.

paid sick leave, would you still agree with the fall through the agreement? she said no. so they really want those 10 paid sick leave. we will see if the district agrees to that so much more to cover. it really has been a twitter battle back and forth, but we're following the latest every hour for you guys, right, sara? hopefully they can come to an agreement for the children and for the parents there. thank you for that. >> well, in the east bay, the oakland unified school district has reached a deal with educators over covid concerns. but it's not enough to keep some teachers from walking off the job in a sickout protest. that's going to happen today. the agreement includes a wellness day for teachers on friday where they can use that day for self care. they can get vaccines and boosters, but the deal is going to also extend covid lee for teachers for the rest of the year. if they contract covid-19 are forced to quarantine by the district hours before the agreement. teachers at frick united academy of language announced a 2 day sic out that started yesterday. it's going to
