Sympathy Strikes Are Growing!

Since the start of the UTLA teacher’s strike at LAUSD on January 14, hundreds of SEIU Local 99 members have taken the courageous action to go on sympathy strikes. The teachers’ demands are our demands too. We want smaller class sizes and more staffing to ensure our students have the services they need, including more custodians and other classified staff to ensure every child can learn in a clean, safe, and supportive school.

Shout out to the schools that led sympathy strikes during week one of the strike: Robert F. Kennedy Community Schools, Haskell STEAM Magnet Elementary School, Hart Street Elementary School, Herrick Avenue Elementary School, Hadden Avenue Early Education Center, Liggett Street Elementary SchoolSylmar Senior High School, 93rd St. Elementary School, 99th St. Elementary SchoolCarson Senior High School, Willenberg Special Ed Center, Alta California Elementary School, Park Western Place Elementary School, Huntington Dr Elementary, Bushnell Way Elementary, Hoover St. Elementary, John A. Sutter Middle School, Harry Bridges Span School, Osceola St. Elementary.

As teachers gear up for a second week of striking, their fight will get an extra push as they are joined by more than 600 SEIU 99 members at 24 additional schools going on sympathy strikes on Tuesday, January 22.
