The union representing 30,000 education workers reached a tentative deal with the Los Angeles Unified School District on Friday, following a three-day strike that closed hundreds of campuses and canceled classes for 422,000 students earlier this week.
Local 99 of the Service Employees International Union, which represents support workers in the school district, sought a 30 percent pay increase and said that many of its employees made little more than the minimum wage and struggled to afford the cost of living in Southern California. Both the union and the school district announced the deal late Friday afternoon.
The Los Angeles teachers’ union had asked its 35,000 members to walk out in solidarity and to avoid crossing the support workers’ picket lines. All told, that meant as many as 65,000 school employees were part of the work stoppage.
