Temporary pay cut approved by Los Angeles teachers

The vote, which needs board approval, could save most school jobs for the next year.

Members of the Los  Angeles teachers union voted overwhelmingly to approve a temporary salary reduction in exchange for sparing thousands of jobs, the union announced Saturday.

The vote, which took place Thursday and Friday, means that the Los Angeles Unified School District's swollen class sizes will not increase next year and that the vast majority of teachers, nurses, librarians and magnet school coordinators — who run popular special programs — are likely to keep their jobs.

The one-year pact calls for four unpaid furlough days, a number that could shrink or increase depending on the state budget.

The Board of Education is expected to approve the agreement June 14.
