LAUSD staff reaches contract deal with district
After reaching a tentative deal with the district, Los Angeles Unified School District cafeteria staff will no longer strike for 24 hours on Tuesday, Los Angeles Daily News reports.
The workers, who belong to Service Employees International Union Local 99, will receive a 3% pay increase that is retroactive to July 1 of last year. Employees who did not receive a full pay raise in their previous contract will also be eligible for an extra 1% increase if they participate in additional training or work.
Additionally, workers will receive a 3% increase for the 2018-19 school year that is conditional on the financial health of the district. Workers who were eligible for the extra 1% will receive it again in that school year.
While a tentative agreement was made, the union and school board must vote on the agreement for it to be official.
