STRIKE OR NO STRIKE?
After nearly a year of contract bargaining with LAUSD, the District continues to be stuck on a 2% raise and a one-time 1% bonus. They also are not making enough movement to address staffing issues that are impacting the cleanliness of our schools and services to special needs to students. Not only is the District not moving on these important issues, there are many instances in which the District is actually bargaining in bad faith. We have marched and rallied. We have spoken out at the school board. We have picketed. We have filed Unfair Practice Charges against the District. Now, it is time to take even stronger action. Fill out the assessment form on this page to let our Bargaining Team know what you think about striking. This is not an official vote on a strike. It's a first step to help our Bargaining Team assess how members feel about a strike and to plan our next steps.
Questions and Answers About a Strike
- We will ask members about their willingness to strike. Members will fill out a form to show where they stand on a strike. The form is not a vote. It is simply a way for our Bargaining Team to assess what a majority of members think about striking.
- If our Bargaining Team feels it is necessary, they will call for an official strike authorization vote. If members vote to support a strike, this vote will give the elected members of our Bargaining Team permission to call for a strike if the District continues to bargain in bad faith.
- Our Bargaining Team will call for a strike and members and the District will be officially notified.
