LAUSD Contract Negotiations

Fighting For Clean, Safe and Supportive Schools for All

We believe excellent public schools are equitable schools where all students have access to a quality education no matter where they live, where they come from, the color of their skin or their abilities. To achieve this, we are fighting for:

Improved School Cleanliness, Healthy and Safety

What We Want

  • Sufficient staff and dedicated funding to ensure all schools are cleaned and sanitized to the same high standards
  • More food service workers to ensure all students receive healthy meals without delays
  • Ensuring there are aides on every school bus, particularly to assist and ensure the safety of special needs students

Increased Academic Support for All Students and Families

What We Want

  • Increased support to address learning loss and close achievement gaps, including increasing staffing levels of teacher assistants, special educations assistants, after school program workers and LAUSD-based Behavior Intervention Implementation (BII) providers
  • Improved parent engagement programs, including full time positions for Community Representatives so they can fully address the wellness, mental health and other needs of students and parents

Equity for Essential School Workers

What We Want

  • Equitable wage increases and health care benefits to retain and recruit skilled, experienced workers.
  • More full-time jobs to meet the needs of our students. Students need full time services.
  • An end to privatization of essential student services to ensure consistency, stability and safety for the entire school community
  • Investment in an educational fund to support the promotion and advancement of dedicated school workers, including growing more teachers from our local communities

Let’s Move the Table!

TAKE ACTION!

A strong contract isn’t just won at the bargaining table. It takes all of us to win the big changes we need.

Together, we can ensure clean, safe and supportive schools for all. Stay tuned for opportunities to take action.

Take the Lead for a Strong Contract: Join the Contract Action Team!

A strong contract is not just won at the bargaining table. It takes action at our worksites and in the streets to win good wages, benefits, job protections and respect for our work. That’s where the Contract Action Team (CAT) comes in. The CAT is made up of members who take the lead at their work sites. As a CAT leader, you will:

  • Keep your co-workers informed about the progress of negotiations.
  • Attend union meetings to get the latest information and plan our next steps.
  • Organize Wear Purple Days, picketing and other actions at your work site and
    mobilize your co-workers for unionwide actions.
  • Get training on organizing to win, communication tools and more!

Negotiations for our next full contract with LAUSD will kick-off on April 7. While our bargaining team will be negotiating directly with LAUSD administrators on wages, benefits and working conditions, we’re approaching negotiations a little differently this time. Members on our Labor Management Committees will play a vital role in negotiating with LAUSD Department heads on job-specific issues.
