Los Angeles School Workers Prepare to Strike
Los Angeles school workers and teachers announced a three-day strike starting next Tuesday.
The workers, represented by Service Employees International Union Local 99, include bus drivers, cafeteria workers, custodians, special education assistants and other essential school workers.
Members of the United Teachers Los Angeles union showed their solidarity by declaring they will refuse to cross the picket line if the strike takes place.
“Despite LAUSD having one of the largest school budgets and largest reserves in the nation – teachers and essential school workers are struggling to support their own families and live in the communities they work for. To add insult to injury, the district has chosen to violate their legal rights as workers, resulting in an unfair labor practice strike,” said UTLA President Cecily Myart-Cruz.
