The LAUSD teachers’ strike has cost millions. Now both sides are negotiating again
After three days of an apparent game of “chicken,” the Los Angeles teachers union said it’s heading back to the negotiating table with the school district.
Talks resumed Thursday for the first time since more than 30,000 educators walked off the job this week to demand smaller class sizes, more school staffing and higher teacher salaries.
“We are having an impact,” said Alex Caputo-Pearl, president of the United Teachers Los Angeles union. “That impact is being felt across the city. And we’ve just got to keep it up.”
