Yesterday the LA County school district reached a deal with non-teachers paving the way for a return to schools for at least some workers:
A union representing non-teachers at Los Angeles Unified — including custodians, food service workers, truck drivers and other essential workers — has reached agreement with the district in preparation for the eventual reopening of schools for in-person instruction, the union announced Monday.
In a statement released Monday morning, Service Employees International Union Local 99 said the agreement with LAUSD will allow for the reopening of some school-based services that were shut down on Dec. 10, 2020, when LAUSD imposed a safer-at-home order in response to a winter surge in COVID 19 cases.
So the lunch lady and the custodian are ready to return to work in schools but the teacher’s union aren’t budging even though Gov. Newsom announced plans to have them vaccinated.
