Teachers union claims LAUSD is lagging in addressing the union’s contract demands

UTLA wants fully-staffed schools, smaller classes, equitable school funding and better pay for teachers

Across the district, thousands of teachers participated in the protest, according to UTLA.

UTLA’s “Beyond Recovery” campaign demands fully-staffed schools, smaller class sizes, equitable school funding and better pay for teachers.
