Fresno Unified and the district's teacher's union still don't have a deal and remain at odds over how much progress has been made in the days leading up to the union's strike vote this week.

The district unveiled its second package proposal at a news conference Friday and endeavored to dispel what the district described as "misinformation" about what that package includes.

The headliners in this proposal include 19% in salary increases for teachers through a combination of ongoing and one-time payments over the next three years, plus a new medical benefits program that Superintendent Bob Nelson said guarantees healthcare coverage for longtime employees.

"If you work for us for 20 years and you retire," he said, "you will never be without medical coverage."
