OAKLAND, Calif. — Oakland officials and the police union negotiated into the night Monday in an attempt to avoid the layoffs of 80 of the city's 776 officers, which could take place at 5 p.m. today.

While negotiators continued to meet, city spokeswoman Karen Boyd said the City Council, which must ratify any agreement, would not meet again until 10:30 a.m. today. Boyd also said the city had miscalculated the effective date of the layoffs and had been previously incorrect in saying they could have taken place Monday.
