Teachers union officials said Thursday that some of their members would not report to work at Los Angeles Unified School District campuses this morning and instead would engage in civil disobedience at the district headquarters to protest potential budget cuts.
United Teachers Los Angeles had planned a one-day strike today, but a judge earlier this week issued a restraining order prohibiting the action.
If teachers continued with the work stoppage, they each would have faced a $1,000 fine and the possible loss of their credentials.
Instead, some educators plan to be at the district headquarters about 10 a.m. for civil disobedience, according to teachers union officials. Union members also will hold a protest in the afternoon.
