The Region : Move in School Pay Fight

March 15, 1987

A state-appointed mediator has called for an independent review in a long-running pay dispute between the Los Angeles school district and United Teachers-Los Angeles. A spokesman for the teachers' union, which represents 32,000 teachers and counselors, said the lack of progress in negotiations over wages spurred a request to the state Public Employment Relations Board to assign a fact-finder to help resolve the dispute. The fact-finder can recommend terms for a settlement, but the recommendation is not binding. Union officials rejected the last formal offer of a 10% raise.

For the Record

An article in The Times on Sunday did not fully describe the last formal wage offer discussed by the Los Angeles Unified School District and United Teachers-Los Angeles. The offer, which the teachers' union rejected, was for a 10% raise retroactive to November, 1986. The teachers union has argued that whatever raise is agreed on be applied to the entire school year, which began in July.
