UTLA members who deliver specialized student services have voted to ratify the agreement with LAUSD on safely delivering specialized student services in a hybrid environment, with 94% Yes ballots cast and 6% No. The voting was conducted by Integrity Voting Systems April 7 through 9.
The tentative agreement includes safety and working conditions that will allow each specialized group to do their work, including conducting assessments and safely providing services at multiple school sites. The sideletter also provides additional specialized PPE equipment, a clearly defined workspace that must be assigned no less than 48 hours prior to being expected to physically return to work, and guidance on carrying out primary and necessary job duties.
