Possible UTLA Strike

It has been widely reported in the news that UTLA, the labor union that represents teachers in the Los Angeles Unified School District, has been in contract negotiations with the district for over a year. UTLA announced that they will go on strike on Monday, January 14th, if they do not come to an agreement with the school district before then. If that happens, it means that many teachers at traditional LAUSD schools will not report to work. This does not include charter schools like Synergy Academies. Synergy schools will remain open if the strike takes place.
