United Teachers Los Angeles says it will strike this week if it can’t reach an agreement with the Los Angeles Unified School District.
After months of unsuccessful negotiations, thousands of teachers in Los Angeles are expected to walk off the job.
United Teachers Los Angeles says it’s getting ready to strike as soon as Thursday if it can’t reach an agreement with the Los Angeles Unified School District.
Along with higher wages and better working conditions, teachers are looking to shrink class sizes and hire more support staff like counselors, nurses and librarians.
But the school district says there simply isn’t enough funding to meet all of those demands. And officials warn a walkout could have a negative impact on nearly half a million students, their families and thousands of employees.
If and when the teachers’ strike happens, it would be the first in Los Angeles since 1989.
