Union Attempt To Thwart LA Charter Fails

A teacher’s union tried to make inroads into a charter school in LA and failed. “As the Los Angeles teachers union continues to try to organize educators at the city’s largest charter school network, teachers at one of the few independent charter schools that joined the union voted to leave it after less than two years because union officials were pushing their own agenda, according to interviews and documents reviewed by LA School Report,” the LA School Report reported. “Teachers at Port of Los Angeles High School had come to United Teachers Los Angeles looking to secure a voice during a time of tumult in the school’s leadership, but they left the union after they failed to get contract waivers they said union leadership had promised.”

“The goals of the teachers and the union clashed, Principal Tom Scotti said.”
