A collection of twenty signs, two buttons, flyers, and a strike handbook collected following the United Teachers Los Angeles
(UTLA) strike, which lasted from January 14-22, 2019. These strike materials were collected from a high school teacher at
Carson High School -- a member of UTLA's Harbor Area community. Some of the signs were created and distributed by UTLA, while
others were created by teachers, students, and members of other local unions.
On January 14, 2019, United Teachers Los Angeles (UTLA), the teacher's union for the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD)
went on strike. UTLA was founded in 1970 by merging several teacher's organizations created to support the teachers working
for the massive LAUSD, the second largest in the country. UTLA is currently organized into eight geographic areas. The last
strike took place in 1989.
