Los Angeles schoolteachers have overwhelmingly ratified a tentative three-year contract calling for pay and benefit increases averaging more than 15%, union officials reported Thursday. More than 30,000 teachers cast ballots Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, favoring the contract by a 4-1 margin, union officials said. To take effect, the contract still must be approved by a majority of the Board of Education, which is scheduled to consider it Feb. 27.

Los Angeles teachers and the district on Tuesday trumpeted a far-reaching contract settlement that averts a threatened strike and gives teachers more than 15% in pay and benefit increases. The three-year agreement, which is expected to get school board approval on a split vote, also shapes compromises on bitterly disputed educational policies ranging from merit pay to principals' authority to assign teachers.

The union representing teachers in the Orange Unified School District says it will let them decide whether to vote on the district's final salary offer or send it back to mediation. The Orange Unified Education Association distributed ballots Friday to its 1,500 members, asking them to say whether they want more information about the district's salary proposal or whether they are ready to vote.

For the third time this year, Orange Unified teachers, parents and students picketed the school district's headquarters Thursday in what they called a dress rehearsal for a districtwide strike. About 600 protesters lined Katella Avenue, waving signs and chanting, "Two, four, six, eight, make the board negotiate." Car horns blared as motorists showed their support.

The teachers union lost another round Wednesday in Orange Unified School District's drawn-out 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 has declined to seek a court ruling that would stop a new contract from taking effect. The union's allegation of unfair labor practices will nevertheless be considered, board attorney Bernard McMonigle said.

Negotiators for the Los Angeles Unified School District and the 43,000-member teachers union Thursday fell just short of reaching a tentative contract agreement that would forestall a Feb. 27 strike. The two sides recessed the talks in the afternoon when Supt. Roy Romer had to leave to catch a plane. The former Colorado governor is spending the holidays with his family. The sessions are expected to resume early in January. Neither side would comment on the terms being discussed.
