And in California, contract negotiations between Los Angeles school district officials and the union representing more than 30,000 teachers are set to resume today, after marathon talks Thursday failed to bring an end to the strike—now in its fifth day. Meanwhile, teachers in Oakland are planning a one-day wildcat strike today to protest stalled contract talks. Oakland teachers say they’re struggling to make ends meet as the cost of living has risen 14 percent across the Bay Area over the past five years; teachers are demanding a 12 percent pay increase over the next three years.
