We are Education Workers United Lifting Our Schools, Raising Our Communities
As the backbone of quality education at Los Angeles Unified School District, we are 30,000 cafeteria workers, custodians, bus drivers, teacher assistants, special education assistants, school supervision aides and others who ensure LAUSD students learn in clean, safe and supportive learning environments.
