SEIU Local 99 members were out in force on Tuesday, March 7 at hundreds of LAUSD schools and worksites leading informational picket lines to protest the school district’s disrespect. Many UTLA teachers also joined the action. Check out photos here.
Charges filed against LAUSD
We let LAUSD that we demand respect! Our union has filed dozens of unfair practice charges with the California Public Employment Relations Board denouncing the district’s harassment, retaliation, and threats against workers for participating in last month’s strike vote and other union activities.
Extension of contract canceled
Members of our bargaining team also spoke out at the LAUSD school board meeting today and notified Superintendent Alberto Carvalho and the board members that we are formally cancelling the extension of our current contract. The cancellation of the contract also ends the “no strike” provision and moves us one step closer to a possible strike to protest the district’s unlawful practices.
LAUSD is on alert! Let’s keep it up. Join the rally March 15.
Join us at the next action – a MASSIVE joint rally with UTLA teachers on Wednesday, March 15, 4:30-6:30pm at Grand Park – 200 N Spring St, Los Angeles, CA 90012 in front of LA City Hall. If you need transportation, Metro day passes are available. Sign-up here.
