Webinar: Los Angeles Teachers: Lessons From their Bargaining for the Common Good Campaign and Strike Victory
Join United Teachers of Los Angeles President Alex Caputo-Pearl, Maurice BP-Weeks of the Action Center on Race and the Economy and other community leaders, parents and students for a webinar on strategies and lessons learned from the recent victorious United Teachers of Los Angeles strike. After months of intensive internal organizing, organizing with the community, and a massive 6-day strike, UTLA won an incredible set of contract victories. In addition to bread and butter wage and healthcare improvements, they won a series of ‘Common Good’ demands including smaller class size, improvements to the learning environment, support for immigrant community members, caps on charter schools, increased green spaces on campus, additional counselors and librarians, and end to random campus searches. In addition to winning for Los Angeles, the UTLA's strike provided inspiration for advocates of public education from across the country.
