Today, we showed Los Angeles the power of education workers united! Thousands of SEIU Local 99 and UTLA members picketed at nearly 500 schools and work sites from 4:30 am to 10:00 am. No amount of drenching rain, intimidation and threats was going to stop us from showing up and showing out.
The red and purple wave crested at LAUSD Headquarters for an amazing rally where we showed Superintendent Carvalho who really holds the power around here. If he hasn’t gotten the message yet, we’re going to do it all again tomorrow and the day after. Check out seiu99.org/lausdstrike to see where pickets are happening, where we’ll be rallying tomorrow, and to report potential violations by the district. Questions? Call our Strike Hotline from 9am – 6pm at 213-338-7949.
