L.A. Unified school teachers are voting all this week whether to authorize a strike as a war of words between their union and the district escalates. The school district filed a formal complaint against United Teachers Los Angeles on Tuesday, accusing them of bargaining in bad faith. The district's filing of a "unfair labor practice" charge comes just days after UTLA lodged its own complaint.
