Workers in Los Angeles public schools end 3-day strike

March 24, 2023
Classes resume Friday in the nation's second-largest district, but the labor disputes that prompted the strike remain unresolved.

Classes were set to resume Friday in the Los Angeles Unified School District after a three-day strike by teachers and support staff.

The Los Angeles Times reports that the labor dispute that prompted the walkout remains unresolved.

Local 99 of Service Employees International Union — which represents 30,000 gardeners, custodians, teacher aides, special education assistants, bus drivers, food service workers and others — asserted that the strike focused attention on the plight of some of the school district’s lowest-paid workers. 

The union wants a 30% across-the-board salary increase plus a $2-per-hour addition for the lowest-paid workers.

The district has offered a 23% pay increase and 3% bonus. Only workers on the job since the 2020-21 school year would receive the full wage increase.

United Teachers Los Angeles urged its 35, 000 members to strike in solidarity with Local 99.
