L.A. teachers strike expected:
A massive teachers strike in Los Angeles is all but inevitable starting Monday after the two sides did not renew negotiations over the weekend. The teachers union rejected a new offer Friday from L.A. Unified School District after hours of talks. United Teachers Los Angeles called the district proposal “woefully inadequate.” With no new talks scheduled, pickets are likely to begin at 7 a.m. as teachers push for a raise and smaller classes. Schools will remain open. The district has hired substitutes to replace staff members who leave schools for picket lines.
