PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - The Portland Association of Teachers canceled a scheduled Thursday meeting between union officials and Portland Public Schools. An Oregon Education Association official says the two sides had agreed the meeting would be confidential, but the school district violated that agreement.

The Oregonian reports there was no immediate response from the district.

The meeting had been expected to be informal. It was scheduled after the parties talked Wednesday with Mayor Charlie Hales at City Hall.

Contract talks stalled on Jan. 16.

The two sides have been talking about a new contract for nine months.
