More than 30,000 teachers rallied at the city hall building in Los Angeles (California) on Monday, January 14, amid an ongoing strike. The Unified Teachers Los Angeles (UTLA) launched an indefinite strike on Monday to demand a salary hike with back pay, more staff, and decreased class sizes. Union officials have indicated the strike will continue until an agreement with the school board is reached and additional demonstrations are possible in coming days and weeks. A heightened security presence and localized transportation disruptions are likely near any future demonstrations.
The United Teachers of Los Angeles (UTLA) union launched its first strike in three decades from January 14, to denounce failed negotiations with district officials over various issues, including funding and class size issues.
Individuals in Los Angeles are advised to monitor developments to the situation, anticipate localized transportation disruptions, and avoid all demonstrations as a precaution.
