The union representing Eastern Michigan University faculty may ask for a strike authorization if its contract demands are not met by midnight Tuesday.
EMU classes are scheduled to begin September 8, but union representatives say teachers may not be there if no contract agreement is reached.
EMU faculty are no strangers to walkouts: They went on strike in 2000, 2004 and 2006.
Howard Bunsis is with the union.
