SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- San Francisco Unified School District workers on Thursday voted overwhelmingly to authorize a strike.
The United Educators of San Francisco announced the results of the vote by members to give leaders the authorization to call for a strike.
More than 3,000 members voted, with 97% saying yes to the strike.
The union that represents 900 para-educators, food service workers, and custodians voted last week to authorize a strike.
They want the district to keep up with what the city pays for similar jobs, which they say is up to 25% higher.
The union says its contract expired at the end of June.
