Los Angeles Teachers Edge Closer to Strike
STORY CREDIT: EdWeek and Stephen Sawchuk published original article.
The Los Angeles district and its teachers' union have hit a formal impasse in contract negotiations, with pay and teacher evaluation among the top issues.
The impasse means that the state's Public Employment Relations Board will appoint a mediator, and then a fact-finder who can make recommendations on a resolution. But those recommendations aren't binding, and United Teachers Los Angeles has warned that it won't settle for an agreement that takes a piecemeal approach to the contract.
