SFUSD said in a press release that it and Common Crafts agreed “to negotiate in good faith to address outstanding grievances, arbitrations, memorandums of understanding, and other contract negotiation-related issues.”

Common Crafts include about 80 plumbers, carpenters, roofers and other tradespersons, the San Francisco Building and Construction Trades Council said in a press release Saturday.

The council said on Saturday that the school district failed to pay wages it owes. It didn’t specify the nature of other issues in dispute, but said they stem from an agreement negotiated with the workers in October 2021.


According to SFUSD, “As part of the MOU, Common Crafts also expressly agrees not to engage in any concerted activity, any work stoppage, sick out, or strike of any kind, including sympathy strikes, through Feb. 1, 2024.”
