04The bargaining session scheduled for today between LA Unified and the teachers union, UTLA, has been cancelled, due to an illness of a union staff member, a district official said.

The agenda had included discussions of teacher support and evaluation, parent empowerment and adult education. What was not expected to be part of the dialogue is bridging the gap between the union’s demand of a one-year, 10 percent salary raise and the district’s offer of 2 percent.

The next session will be the previously scheduled meeting on Nov. 14 unless the sides agree to add a make-up session before then. Another meeting is on the books for Dec. 4.
