STATEMENT: Mayor Garcetti on LAUSD initiative to save health care costs

“The movement to improve our schools depends on partnerships between everyone who believes that our kids deserve an excellent education — and I applaud LAUSD, UTLA, SEIU 99, and all of the district’s labor partners for achieving tremendous savings on health care costs. The way that all sides have joined hands to resolve the strike, put Measure EE on the ballot, and deliver savings that can be invested in our classrooms illustrates what we will continue to achieve by uniting around a better future for our students and local schools.” — Mayor Eric Garcetti
