UTLA plans to strike Monday
Today a Superior Court judge reaffirmed what UTLA has known all along – that UTLA notified LAUSD properly and has a legal right to strike on January 14, 2019. This latest ruling follows two previous attempts to get an injunction that have also been thrown out.
“Regardless of Austin Beutner’s attempts to take away our legal right to strike," UTLA President Alex Caputo-Pearl says, "our ability to act collectively as a union is not just confirmed by a Superior Court judge but by our members coming together to fight for what’s right in this moment; our students who deserve so much more than Beutner’s austerity agenda; and our parents and community, who join us in our belief that public education in Los Angeles must be saved now.”
