UPDATE June 2022: the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health (LACDPH) has continued to ease COVID restrictions and the daily disinfecting of buses will no longer be needed. As a result, the  agreement between SEIU Local 99 and LAUSD addressing the need to do daily disinfecting of buses and the $50/day stipend will expire on June 30, 2022.


In order to continue to ensure the health and safety of students and staff, bus Drivers at LAUSD voted to approve an agreement to disinfect their school buses at the end of each work day.  Bus drivers will earn an additional $50 per day ($250 per week) stipend to disinfect their buses. Additionally, all Bus Drivers will be paid for their actual time worked to perform this task in a reasonable amount of time.

Disinfecting will include a wipe down of all high touch surfaces of the bus. The school district will provide all supplies including approved disinfectant, paper towels, disposable gloves and face masks.
