Statement by Los Angeles Unified School District (10-31-18)
Los Angeles Unified remains committed to good-faith bargaining and providing hardworking teachers with better pay and more support. Los Angeles Unified has made it clear to UTLA leadership it will provide teachers with a six percent salary increase with no contingency, set firm boundaries to safeguard against increasing class sizes across the school district and protect healthcare benefits for all current UTLA members.
Los Angeles teachers deserve more. And together, alongside all of our other labor partners, students, families and communities, Los Angeles Unified is working to increase funding for public education and hopes UTLA leadership will join this effort soon.
