Los Angeles teachers are voting this week on whether to ratify a new contract with the Los Angeles Unified School District. The more than 43,000 members of United Teachers-Los Angeles started casting ballots Monday at schools across the district. The voting will conclude today. Union officials will tally the ballots Thursday. The three-year contract would give teachers average pay increases of 11.5%, retroactive to July 1.

After two years of acrimonious contract negotiations, Orange Unified School District's teachers overwhelmingly ratified the latest offer Monday but at the same time voiced a lack of faith in the school board.

The raises handed out in Orange County mirror a trend across California, but teachers here are seeing particularly large increases, said Dale Martin, a spokeswoman for the California Teachers' Assn. The reason for the raises is simple.

Los Angeles Schools Supt. Roy Romer on Thursday presented teachers with a new contract proposal offering salary increases that would total about 20% over the next three years, slightly more than what the teachers are demanding for the first year of a new contract. After weeks of negotiations, the union's most recent offer was for a salary increase of 18.8% this year.

Teachers in Orange Unified want to vote on the school district's latest salary proposal for the upcoming school year, according to the results of a union referendum released late Wednesday. The district's final salary proposal would mean substantial raises for some veteran teachers and much smaller raises for beginning teachers. It also would raise the costs of health care benefits for some teachers.

After months of on-and-off negotiations, Los Angeles teachers and school district officials are still divided over salary increases and a series of other issues, and both sides report that positions are hardening. The district is several weeks away from the possibility of a strike that would close schools, but both sides say they have now set limits beyond which they will not move, even if it means a walkout.
