This administration is the worst. Back in April Norberto Perez unlawfully and abruptly shut down the Transportation Department. This was a victory for him because from the moment he was promoted from CWA to COO, the department was on his radar.
Months prior to his abrupt closure, he gave reasonings to why he wanted to SHUT IT DOWN. If it was due safety, why didn’t Mr.Coo try to better or fix whatever the issues were? But then again he did say it was due to cost. Make up your mind bully.
Needless to say his reasons did not stick and therefore he had to find another way.
Transportation only transports Special Needs students. We know it’s all about self and not the students because he would know they are not good with change. Also, we may be losing General Ed students, but we see the same special needs students day in and day out. Year after year.
On April 28th he said it was due to safety. School opened on April 26th yet he came two days later to inspect the buses? My questions are what are his certifications? Is he CHP? A certified mechanic? Because it sure looked like it the way he was “unsafely” under the buses checking. He also lied and said ALL of the buses were unsafe and leaking oil, as well as the calibers were damaged. And he saw all of this without removing the tire. Only from laying on the ground “unsafely” under the buses.
Back to his lie.
We have FOUR brand NEW buses in our fleet that have never been on routes due to the Pandemic. So again how could ALL of the buses be deemed unsafe? The buses cannot operate without CHP inspecting them. The 292’s were current and up to date, yet, Torres allowed this to go on and allowed him to make this call. Torres is allowing all sorts of turmoil at the hands of Perez. It’s July, and we’re still not working.
The summer routes were contracted out, which goes against our union contract. Torres couldn’t possibly care about employees, let alone humans, because she allowed Perez displace a whole department. I guess she only cares about her lipstick and stilettos.
Perez also contracted out the graduation to Tumbleweed when we could have transported. He has also contracted out summer work. Two of the drivers were not allowed to use the buses to retest and now they have lost their credentials. Past practice has always allowed us to use the buses to take our test. According to Perez this isn’t the district’s responsibility.
Perez’s malicious and vengeful act has impacted the department tremendously. How can we rent a bus when we have no money? We are out of work. Struggling. We can’t get unemployment. We are not even able to live due to our livelihoods being snatched away. No income to pay our rent, utilizes and buy groceries. Needless to say we are halfway homeless and hungry.
Our union rep suggested we file an appeal with EDD. Which takes 90 days. So, again I ask how could Torres care about the employees? She allowed Perez to make this call. We are seasoned employees. Most of us been in the department 8 years plus. Therefore this is really a burden on our lives.
Norberto Perez is a bully on a power trip, and he’s obsessed with the Transportation Department. However, the blame falls on Erica Torres. This is all at her hands for sitting back turning the blind eye and allowing these things to go on.
Distressed and Depressed
I have a question so please do not attack me. I just want to know if you guys can hold a rally get the community involved with what’s going on. Get a news team out get it on the news what’s happening. Get a petition started to get them out. I think taking action will start things to rolling they won’t do anything if you’re just complaining. Let the people know how they’re lying about transportation. How they only hold meetings with Latinos and not with the blacks. How coaches haven’t been paid. How you guys can’t get unemployment and you’re about to lose your homes. I can’t remember all that was said but let the community know what’s happening let the world know what they’re doing to you guys. Once they’re exposed to the public then the higher ups will start taking action. It will be hard work but nothing is hard if they’re taking away your livihood and getting away with it. Cussing them out calling them names isn’t going to move them. Taking action exposing then hopefully will. All that you all are saying on this post let the people know let the world know. Start making noise where the higher-ups can’t hide from.
I’m just saying maybe then they will start paying attention.
We have done all of this. A petition, protested outside the district office, as well as a podcast. We went over Torres head to her boss, LACOE and Autumn Burke. It is very hard. I appreciate your suggestions. It’s drivers that’s experiencing repo’s due to no income. This is out of hand and ridiculous. Perez needs to be stopped and fired. Torres too. She’s allowing him to bully and disrespect the employees.
Members needs to appeal to EDD. Yes it takes time but we always win. Do not listen to naysayers.

This is a bunch of bull. Chris Graver protected Kendrea and her thug team, he was exposed, thats why Calpro is gone. I am a driver and have to put up with the lies. The department was turning around with repairs, the buses are its best. BUT now its back to shit- Kendrea and her team will be exposed as well.

They our the only district that haven’t payed there coaching staff season been over 5months ago
Why not try something different?
IUSD employees have an immense amount of power should they decide to exercise and use it.
What’s apparent to me the district doesn’t respect their employee’s and they don’t feel the need to address these ongoing concerns.
Start putting pressure on Autumn Burke and Steve. Bradford.
Start treating your fight as a campaign , be relentless
With elections coming up next year in Inglewood , it’s the idea time to force these politicians, including the Inglewood City Council to make a real commitment to fix our schools.
They read these letters and trust me it irritates them but not enough to the point they feel the need to correct these problems.
This is chess not checkers.
We are hiring nlmusd
Come norwalk la mirada unified we are hiring, benefit s and ot, we have one driver from Inglewood already
Perez’s actions has really taken a toll on us all. We have never had to deal with so much chaos an devastation. Has he ever thought about what if everything was taken away from him? To contract out our work and leave us without any source of income is cruel. Our unemployment denied. HR is a full on joke. At least Nora (former HR Director) supported you and tried to assist. These new people in HR could give a damn. They only go off what Perez says and does. They’re weak an not willing to make a call. That Erica Jackson is the worst coon ever. Torres is pointless. She sits back while her shot caller Perez devastates and destroys the lives of the employees. So stop sending emails and messages like you care. She has yet to tell him to stop. Perez has got it bad for the Transportation Department and gardeners too. I’ve never seen a COO so fixated on destroying a group of black folks lives. Not to mention he hates our Dispatcher(who is black) and I believe this is all really to get rid of her. Thing is she knows her job, and held the department down with and without a coordinator. He never wanted to work with her, knowing that he knows nothing about transportation. You know you’re an evil person when you out to get a person you do not know, and willing to take a whole department down just to do it. But as the Bible says, the devil comes to kill, steal and destroy. Vengeance is the Lords Norberto. We’ve been in this district for many years. Never expecting our lives to be turned upside down at the hands of a monster. He does know this is a Pandemic? And it’s hard out here. Why devastate people’s lives by taking away our livelihood. The way he’s obsessed with Transportation, I believe he’s tampering with the buses.
Looking to the union is pointless. This should not have ever got this far. We are not bad people and did not deserve this. When it comes down to it, no one has helped us.
The unclassified and classified all need to be replaced…..the whole Inglewood Unified School District needs to be fired and restructured. Our community needs to address this Assembly woman Autim Burke and CA State Superintendent about the District and school by laws. Many people in this district all they do is complain and never find solutions to resolve problems. The District must fire everyone.
Just another dumb comment
Shut up! You sound so stupid.
????FUCK ERIKA WHORESS EVERYBODY KNOWS THIS INCOMPETENT RACIST TRICK IS THE RING LEADER TO BITCHASS PUSSIEREZZ AND THE SHIT HE’S DOING SHE’S FULLASHIT AND EVEN MORE WORSE THAN PUSSIEREZZ SHE HIDE BEHIND HIM AND PLAY STR8 DUMB OLE OLIVE OIL UGLY LOOKING ASS‼️‼️‼️‼️‼️‼️‼️‼️
Lol. She actually looks like Elvira.
Either way she still fucking UGLY????????????
Everyone in the District must get fired and restructure a better working environment. This is not only a black school is a diverse school….so stop bringing the race card!!! We live in the same neighborhood
Its not playing the race card when they speak truth look around……they hire a 70y o. Mexican woman who don’t know what she’s doing….they picked her to do maintenance??? When she has no experience and failed the test. They refused to hire knowledgeable black workers in maintenance. They only pick Mexicans workers in maintenance who literally don’t know their job. 1 white guy about to retire and they’ll replace him with a another Mexican who can’t do the work. It has everything to do with race in maintenance. They don’t wanna hire black workers. Willie, Fernando, Julio all got hired under Hernandez and was only hired for one reason……take a guess
Speaking str8 Factz ,right there and all perez butchass is doing is eradicating all the blacks in the district to be replaced by Mexicans hell look at the district office all those bitches down there in payroll don’t know what they’re doing and only do what pussyass perez tell them to do there are no blacks down there at the district office but Ms.Jackie at the front desk when u walk in pussy perez and Mike Aroma both are disrespectful ASSHOLEs who think they can talk to employees any kind of way and then when you stand up to these bitches, they wanna scream insubordination, but don’t scream that shit when they come at an employees in a foul disrespectful manner‼️‼️‼️ incompetent stupid suckerass punks who think they hard, till they run up on the right Man…..
Shut ur dumb stupidass up, all it is racial, you must be the other talking that dumbshit you spewed out ur mouth‼️‼️
How dafucc its a diverse school when majority of it is Latino, just STFU, with that everyone needs to be fired shit ,cause if you work at the district yo ass needs to be fired too‼️‼️‼️‼️‼️
I’ve been in the Transportation Department 10 yrs. Explain how our trainers have always been African American. Now under Perez it’s a Hispanic? It’s not racial…
He never hires African Americans. Why don’t your dumb ignorant ass go right ahead and quit. We are not all the same. I’m not racist, but I do see what’s going on. And Anthony better watch himself. Because Mike is prepping Ernesto to take his job. This shit has become so cut throat.
