LA Teachers Union Refuses A 'Premature' Return To Classrooms
Members of the United Teachers Los Angeles union have voted overwhelmingly to demand three conditions before returning to class.
Those include: teachers must have the opportunity to be fully vaccinated; L.A. County must move into the red tier; and certain safety protocols are required to be in place.
UTLA President Cecily Myart-Cruz called the vote "overwhelming" and decisive.
"Out of 24,580 ballots cast 91% were yes and 9% were no that powerful UTLA members have voted overwhelmingly to resist a premature and unsafe physical return to school sites."
"This signals that members are prepared to refuse to except an unsafe work assignment."
