L.A. substitute teachers may lose hours

September 18, 2009 10:19:17 PM PDT
Some Los Angeles Unified School District teachers are trying to stop a deal between union leaders and school officials.As part of the deal, 1,800 newly laid off teachers will move to the top of the substitute teacher list, jumping over substitute teachers with more seniority.

The goal was to keep the laid off teachers working, but many substitute teachers are angry, saying they will get less hours and possibly lose their benefits.

Substitutes must work at least one day a month to keep their benefits.

Union leaders say schools can still request substitutes, no matter where they fall on the list.
