LAUSD Strike Continues with No Deal Reached

The LAUSD worker strike is set to enter its third day as a deal has not been reached between the school district and the striking union and teachers.

Despite Mayor Bass acting as a mediator, classes will be canceled for the third day in a row on Thursday.

Striking school employees, with the backing of their teaching colleagues, have shut down the district and are fighting for a new deal that includes increased staffing and improved wages.

Many workers, like Janae Tyler, a part-time teacher parent and family center director, rely on second jobs to make ends meet.

The strike is also about more than just money, as Tanya Cortez, a behaviorist assigned to a student with autism, highlights the need for increased staffing.

The district’s response via tweet is that they are doing everything possible to reach an agreement, but the striking workers disagree, saying that the district needs to increase its offer.

Both sides are currently about seven percentage points apart.

Multiple rallies across Southern California are being held in support of the striking workers.
