REP LIEU STATEMENT ON UTLA STRIKE
WASHINGTON - Today, Congressman Ted W. Lieu (D-Los Angeles County) issued the following statement on the United Teachers Los Angeles strike.
“I stand with UTLA and their fight for better resources for Los Angeles’ public education system. Unions are the backbone of American society, and they strengthen our country by fighting for higher wages, stronger workplace protections and beneficial policies for workers. Public teachers unions, in particular, strengthen our public education systems and help students succeed by advocating for better school resources, smaller class sizes and policies that entice top talent. An investment in our public education system is an investment in our future, and UTLA has my support.”
