Menino accuses teachers union of delay tactics

In a rare move, a frustrated Mayor Thomas M. Menino asked state labor ­officials Thursday to investigate the more than two-year stalemate over a new teacher contract and to recommend a resolution, as he accused union officials of unleashing new delay tactics that could thwart any possibility of wrapping up the talks soon.

Menino also announced that the School Department would unilaterally impose a new teacher evaluation system, even though the two sides have been unable to reach an agreement on one. Boston is under a state deadline this fall to enact a new evaluation system or risk losing millions of dollars in state funds.
