Pittsburgh teachers union authorizes strike

Negotiators for Pittsburgh (PA) Public Schools and its teachers' union met for about 6 1/2 hours Wednesday without reaching agreement on a new contract.

"I didn't think things went very well," said John Tarka, president of the Pittsburgh Federation of Teachers. He declined to elaborate. Talks are scheduled to resume Friday.

Union leaders, who represent 4,042 teachers and other school employees, have been authorized by members to call a strike when they consider it necessary. The teachers' contract expired June 30.
