Negotiations to end a teachers strike in the Alpine Union School District failed Sunday night.

That means the teachers will be back on the picket lines Monday.

There is no word when talks will resume.

Teachers in Alpine walked off the job last Thursday to protest pay and benefit cuts.

The school board recently approved a 7.85 percent salary cut and an $8,000 cap on health benefit contributions, which went into effect Jan. 1.

The superintendent argues that the teachers’ demands would bankrupt the district. But the teachers believe there are other areas where cuts can be made.

This is the first teachers strike in San Diego County since 1996.
