LA school distrtict to pay raise minimum wage to $15 an hour

LOS ANGELES—Officials with the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) are set to reveal details of a tentative deal with a union representing nearly 20,000 cafeteria workers, custodians and other employees that would raise their minimum wage to over $15 an hour over two years.

The “landmark” deal was announced Monday by the Service Employees International Union (SEIU), which represents the workers.

In addition to the minimum wage increase for workers earning below $15 an hour, the agreement includes pay increases of over 6 percent for all others workers, restoration of special education work hours, and increased staffing hours, according to SEIU.
