Los Angeles Unified School District Superintendent Alberto M. Carvalho announced on June 22 that the district has reached a two-year tentative agreement with its labor partners to continue to provide health and welfare benefits to more than 95,000 employees and retirees.
“As I shared during the recent Los Angeles Unified budget presentations, it is my intention to provide our employees with high-quality health care,” Carvalho said. “I look forward to continuing to collaborate with labor partners to reach fair and equitable agreements in the best interest of our students and families.”
“We are delighted to have reached an agreement and are pleased with Superintendent Carvalho’s commitment to continue to provide healthcare for employees and retirees,” said Adriana Salazar Avila, Teamsters Local 572 business representative and health benefits committee negotiations chair.
The agreement is subject to ratification by labor partners and adoption by the district’s Board of Education.
