Los angeles teachers strike — A tentative deal announced Tuesday could end the six-day teachers’ union strike in the nation’s second-largest school district.
Negotiators for the Los Angeles Unified School District reached an agreement with the United Teachers Los Angeles in the early hours of Tuesday morning after a 21-hour bargaining session. Teachers are scheduled to vote on the agreement Tuesday, so the earliest they would return to work would be Wednesday.
The agreement includes a 6 percent raise for teachers; lower class sizes and more nurses and counselors at schools, said Alex Caputo-Pearl, president of the union. “This is much more than just a narrow labor agreement,” he said.(los angeles teachers strike)
The walkout created chaos in schools responsible for the education of nearly 500,000 students. Mayor Eric Garcetti, a Democrat, joined the talks, which were held at City Hall.
“This is an historic agreement,” Garcetti said. “It’s time for a new day in public education in Los Angeles.”
Besides its massive scope, the strike has been closely watched nationwide because it raised issues about public education. The L.A. walkout was the latest in a series of high-profile teacher work actions. But unlike labor uprisings in West Virginia and Kentucky, the L.A. strike came in a reliably Democratic area where voters usually support generous bond issues for causes like housing for the homeless and rebuilding public libraries.
