Teaching assistants in the Los Angeles Unified School District announced Tuesday that they will begin a "rolling" strike today that will involve up to 100 different schools each day until their demands for a contract with job security and health benefits are met. About 10,000 teaching assistants, 70% of whom are bilingual Latinas, won their bid for union representation in January and have been trying to reach an agreement with the district ever since.
