LAUSD Deal Reached For Smaller Class Sizes, 21% Teacher Raises

The Los Angeles Unified School District and the teacher’s union announced a tentative labor deal Tuesday morning.

The Los Angeles Unified School District and the union representing its teachers announced Tuesday they have reached a tentative labor agreement that includes a 21% salary increase and reductions in class sizes.

“With this tentative agreement, LAUSD now has an opportunity to become one of the most successful school districts in the country,” United Teachers Los Angeles President Cecily Myart-Cruz said in a statement. “We held the line during bargaining on a number of initiatives because educators are the experts on what has the ability to transform LAUSD into a more equitable environment that not only improves students’ learning but also the quality of life for L.A. families.

“Smaller class sizes will give our kids the attention and care they require, and competitive salaries will ensure our schools can successfully hire, retain and develop successful teachers and educators to mold our young leaders of tomorrow.”

The district issued a statement saying the agreement “significantly increases salaries for teachers across the district.”
