“Our members have once again taken on the burden of saving this District from itself, but it is clear from this close vote that our capacity to bear that burden year after year is at an end.”
The agreement approved today is in part based on receiving funds from Governor Brown’s education funding initiative, which will be on the November ballot. Mr. Fletcher stated that by securing that funding it would “remove some of all of the potential furlough days for 2012-13.” To read UTLA’s full communication click here.
