Negotiations between the Los Angeles Unified School District and the union, United Teachers Los Angeles, are expected to continue throughout the weekend.

More than 30,000 members of the teacher union are preparing to walk out of their jobs on Monday over pay and class-size issues, among other things. If that happens, it’d be the first LAUSD strike in 30 years. The 1989 strike lasted 9 days.

AirTalk opens up the phones to talk to parents about how they plan to prepare for Monday’s potential strike, and to those who remember the 1989 work stoppage.
