On April 7, 2022, members on our SEIU Local 99 Bargaining Team began negotiations with LAUSD for our next full contract. Our team will be presenting proposals to ensure clean, safe and supportive schools for all by improving wages, hours, staffing and more.
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’re fighting for a LAUSD contract that improves cleanliness, health and safety, academic support, and the jobs we do that make quality education possible.
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.

We had one negotiations session with the district on [Read more]
