On Wednesday, the Service Employees International Union Local 99 announced a three-day strike would kick off March 21, as the union are in the midst of negotiating new labor pacts with the district. The union represents nearly 30,000 bus drivers, custodians, special education assistants and other workers.

Earlier in the week, LAUSD Superintendent Alberto Carvalho left a voicemail to parents saying that the district may have to close schools until the strike ends.

On Thursday, Carvalho told reporters he’s “confident” a deal can be made to avoid the strike.
