Talks end between teachers union, school board

Contract talks between the Oakland Teachers Union and school board have ended.

The union announced Monday that it would not continue bargaining.

Oakland teachers staged a one-day walkout earlier this month after the district imposed a contract on them. The two sides have been negotiating for two years in a dispute over wages and class sizes.

The district faces an $85 million budget shortfall. Oakland's teachers are the lowest paid in Alameda County.

There are no plans to go back to the bargaining table.
