In Los Angeles, the union representing tens of thousands of public school teachers has delayed plans to begin a strike today, even as teachers remain far from a breakthrough in contract talks. The union now says it’s prepared to strike on Monday unless its demands are met. Union negotiators want an immediate 6.5 percent raise, along with smaller class sizes, more librarians, fewer standardized tests and more teacher input in local school leadership councils.
