The two sides decided last week to extend the contract for a month while negotiations for the new two-year pact continue. Both sides said they expect to have a tentative agreement that could be distributed to teachers and voted on by the board and the system's 7,000 teachers in early fall. The two sides are discussing salaries, benefits and work conditions, including time allotted for teacher training, and teacher evaluations, said Mark D.

DENVER - Qwest Communications International Inc., the largest local-telephone service provider in the Northwest, and the Communications Workers of America, which represents 60 percent of its workers, remain at odds on central elements in a new contract more than a day after the old one expired. Contract talks between the company and the CWA are "stalled," said Candice Johnson, a union spokeswoman. She said the two sides are "still very far apart on key issues." Qwest negotiators averted a walkout after failing to reach an agreement before a 12:01 a.m. deadline Sunday, when the old contract ended.
