Teacher strike expected to start Monday in Los Angeles

LOS ANGELES, Cal. (WILX) - Up to 30,000 teachers across 900 public schools in Los Angeles are expected to go on strike starting Monday.

This follows a months-long standoff between the United Teachers Los Angeles Union and the Los Angeles Unified School District over class sizes and pay for teachers, counselors and librarians.

The teachers rejected an offer from the district on Friday after hours of negotiations.

Although schools will remain open during the strike, with substitutes filling in, some parents are keeping their kids at home.
