Today, UTLA filed an Unfair Labor Practice charge against LAUSD for unlawful interference with the union’s strike authorization vote and for failure to provide key public information and financial documents as they relate to bargaining.
Although LAUSD claims otherwise, the California Public Employees Relations Board today confirmed what UTLA declared two weeks ago - that negotiations between UTLA and LAUSD are in a deadlock, and a state mediator has been appointed. UTLA is also preparing to conduct a strike authorization vote Aug. 23-30.
One day after UTLA declared impasse in bargaining, hundreds of chapter leaders mobilized in downtown LA at our “All in for Respect” conference to hear UTLA President Alex Caputo-Pearl deliver his annual State of the Union address.
