From LA to the bay, UTLA members sent support.

UTLA members went back on the picket lines before school on February 22 to show support for striking educators in Oakland and to demand action on two items that will help all California schools: increased per-pupil funding and an immediate cap on the unregulated growth of the charter industry.

UTLA has been working side by side  with sister teachers’ unions for many years. UTLA and the Oakland Education Association are both members of the California Alliance for Community Schools (CACS), and rank-and-file teachers from LA and West Virginia have been collaborating through Labor Notes since West Virginia’s game-changing strike in 2018.
