Fact-finder considered in teacher talks

Mayor frustrated over negotiations

The state Department of ­Labor Relations said Tuesday that it would consider Mayor Thomas M. Menino’s request to investigate and recommend a resolution of the stalled negotiations over a teachers union contract, but rejected his ­request to make the process public.

In a letter to the mayor, ­Erica F. Crystal, the agency’s ­director, said she expects to make her decision by Aug. 31. She said she would consult with the state mediator who has been helping the School Depart­ment and the teachers union find common ground in the talks for the last few months.
