UTLA is planning a rally outside LA Unified headquarters at 4 p.m. tomorrow to demand pay raises. The protest comes on the one-year anniversary of Prop 30, a measure that raised state taxes to avert nearly $6 billion in cuts to public education.
“We cannot allow the Superintendent to squander Prop 30 funds on pet projects, while we continue to suffer,” UTLA told its members on the union website. “We have earned a pay raise and the money is there.”
From the looks of the slide show above, the union is not entirely happy with LA Unified Superintendent John Deasy‘s position on the matter.
