Labor negotiations

Teachers, parents and students picket under the rain in downtown Los Angeles Thursday, Jan. 17, 2019. A new round of contract negotiations began between Los Angeles school district officials and a teachers union as thousands of educators picketed in the rain. The announcement that the two sides were sitting down Thursday for the first time in nearly a week didn't indicate whether any new contract offers would be on the table. Union officials tempered expectations, saying a quick deal was unlikely. District officials have said teacher demands could bankrupt the school system. (AP Photo/Damian Dovarganes)
