Employees of the Los Angeles Unified School District are poised to begin a massive three-day strike on Tuesday that would shut down the nation’s second largest school district.

The Service Employees International Union Local 99, which counts 30,000 LAUSD service workers among its members, will go on strike next week, seeking improved working conditions and higher pay for its members.

The union will be joined by the United Teachers of Los Angeles, forcing the school district to close for at least three days.

Max Arias, SEIU Local 99’s executive director, said the following in a press release:

“As LAUSD parents and workers, SEIU Local 99 members know a strike will be a sacrifice, but the school district has pushed workers to take this action… Families have been sacrificing for far too long on poverty wages. Students have been sacrificing for too long in school environments that are not clean, safe, or supportive for all. Too many workers have been subjected to harassment simply for demanding change. Enough is enough!”

The Los Angeles teachers union has vowed to join the picket line in “solidarity” with the striking employees, which mostly consists of bus drivers, cafeteria workers, school custodians, and special education assistants.

United Teachers Los Angeles President Cecily Myart-Cruz released the following statement regarding the strike:
“In a school district where 86% of students live in poverty and staff salaries aren’t nearly enough to pay rent or sometimes even put food on the table, we are proud to stand alongside the members of SEIU Local 99 as we demand an end to the hoarding of resources and call on LAUSD to make the investments today necessary to secure our success tomorrow.”

  1. No indoctrination centers? Probably a good thing for students. Get rid of the teachers. How about they ask the teachers union for the millions of millions of dollars they got during the pandemic?

  2. Nobody wants to teach, we cannot find enough teachers In Los Angeles. Why would that be? Maybe the high-minded individuals expressing their teacher-bashing comments before me could volunteer to try to be teachers for a few hours. Why don’t you try? Then, we can talk.

  3. I don’t get it. So everyone that is going on strike is bus drivers and lunch ladies and custodians? Why are the actual teachers not striking? I’m confused.

  4. Most excellent!!!
    Commiefornia is going bankrupt!!!
    They can’t roll out enough taxes out of their asses to run their state
