The United Teachers of Los Angeles (UTLA) union has called on its members to stage an indefinite strike from Monday, January 14, to denounce failed negotiations with district officials over various issues, including funding and class size issues. A protest march is also scheduled to take place on Monday, with participants expected to gather in front of the City Hall bafore marching to the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) headquarters.
A heightened security presence as well as traffic disruptions are likely in the vicinity of the protest.
The strike and protest mark the first teachers walkout in Los Angeles - the country's second-largest school district - in three decades.
Individuals in Los Angeles are advised to monitor developments to the situation, anticipate localized transportation disruptions, and avoid all demonstrations as a precaution.
