Los Angeles teachers return to schools after reaching deal

LOS ANGELES Thousands of Los Angeles teachers returned to work Wednesday after voting to ratify a deal between their union and school officials, ending a six-day strike in the nation's second-largest district.

"Great! It can't be better!" exclaimed Helen Han, a kindergarten Mandarin language teacher, as she returned to Castelar Elementary in Chinatown. "I wasn't really worried because the parents were totally behind us."

After 20 months of negotiations before striking, it took an overnight bargaining session to come to an agreement that ended the strike.

Yeah, UTLA won this one. Good. It's an old-school kick-ass union, and I know a goodly number of its members who are out there actively subverting the dominant paradigm.
