On January 14, one of the most important labor actions of the decade will begin as more than 30,000 educators in LAUSD go on strike for smaller class sizes, more nurses and counselors, a fair wage, and accountability for charter schools. UTLA and its members are committed to improving learning conditions for our kids.
We have an opportunity to go beyond solidarity and engage in joint struggle, breaking down the barriers between “worker” and “community.” We are one.
Here are some ways that you and your members can support the strike:
Adopt one or several schools where parents and community members can join the picket lines before and after school.
Here is a list of schools in each of UTLA’s 8 regional areas:
|Central||Santee Education Complex||1921 S Maple Ave||Los Angeles||CA|
