We are Teacher Assistants, Special Education Assistants, Custodians, Cafeteria Workers, Bus Drivers and other dedicated school workers in the Los Angeles Unified School District who help students learn in a clean, safe and supportive environment every day. We are concerned about:
- Dirty schools and locked bathrooms due to low staffing levels of custodians
- Lack of support services for special education students
- Limited resources for parents due to minimal work hours for Community Representatives who staff Parent Centers
- Poverty wages paid to the mostly women, Black and Latino workers who provide student services at LAUSD.
We are currently in negotiations with LAUSD to find solutions to these concerns. But after a year, there is no significant progress. That’s why we’re considering a strike. We don’t want to strike, but feel it is the only way the school district will take these concerns seriously.
Please contact LAUSD School Board Members and tell them to negotiate fairly to increase staffing for vital student services and ensure good jobs for the dedicated education workers who help our children learn.
