Los Angeles (myFOXla.com) - The head of the Los Angeles teachers union says talks are under way that could lead to the rehiring of 2,000 teachers laid off in June.
< AJ Duffy, president of United Teachers Los Angeles, said Wednesday a deal appears to be close with the school district, but he would not provide details. He says talks have been serious and have lasted about five weeks.
Ellen Morgan, a spokeswoman for the Los Angeles Unified School District, would not comment.
The nation's second largest school district laid off the teachers last month due to a $600 million budget
