The teachers union lost another round Wednesday in the Orange Unified School District's prolonged labor skirmish--a fight that may result in a two-day strike next week. The Orange teachers union and administrators learned Wednesday that the state Public Employment Relations Board declined to seek a court ruling that would stop a new contract from taking effect. The union's allegation of unfair labor practices still will be considered, however, board attorney Bernard McMonigle said.

A first-grade teacher who had been fasting since last month because of the slow pace of talks on teacher pay increases ended her protest Tuesday on the advice of her doctors. Annya Bell, who teaches at Forty-Second Street School in South-Central Los Angeles, said she ended her liquid-only fast because she must build up her strength for the eye surgery she has scheduled for next month. A pacifist and student of Mahatma Gandhi, Bell said she lost 19 pounds during the 41-day protest.

Teachers will finish voting on the school district's latest offer on Wednesday, capping four months of intense contract negotiations. The results of the three-day advisory vote held at each of the city's 30 schools will be released when both parties meet on Thursday. If teachers vote against the proposed contract, the school district will ask for a state mediator. Negotiators for the Irvine Teachers Assn. recommended last week that the district's 1,000 teachers reject the offer.

More than 100 teachers crowded into this week's Board of Education meeting for the Saddleback Valley Unified School District to complain bitterly about stalled talks that have left them without a contract. Teachers seek a 3% pay increase for the 1991 and 1992 school years, while district officials want to maintain the current wage and benefit package, which includes some built-in increases.
