“Negotiations resumed Thursday for the first time in a week to settle the teachers’ strike in the Los Angeles Unified School District.
The venue is City Hall; the start time was high noon.
The talks resumed under the aegis of Mayor Eric Garcetti, although Garcetti himself has other events scheduled for much of the day. His observer in the talks is likely to be senior aide Matt Szabo. The mayor has said he will step in as needed.
Garcetti met with Alex Caputo-Pearl, the president of United Teachers Los Angeles, and L.A. schools Supt. Austin Beutner before the negotiating teams went back to work, the mayor’s office said.”
