Negotiators for Pittsburgh Public Schools and the union representing its teachers negotiated until about 11 p.m. Friday, trying to stave off a strike threatened by the Pittsburgh Federation of Teachers.

Ebony Pugh, a spokeswoman for the school district, said the long negotiating session produced no agreement but teachers also did not give the district the required 48-hour strike notice.

Negotiations were expected to continue next week, she said.

PFT President Nina Esposito-Visgitis released a statement which said, “After a 14-hour negotiations session today, our state mediator ended the meeting. Some progress was made. Another meeting has been set for next week.”
