CMU: Some bargaining progress, big gap on pay
Central Michigan University says there’s been some progress involving contract talks with the faculty union this weekend. The progress has been related to non-economic issues, but there’s still a big gap having to do with pay and benefits.
Talks took place Saturday. Classes are scheduled to start Monday on the Mount Pleasant campus.
The faculty union has a meeting planned Sunday afternoon to discuss whether or not to hold a job action. A job action could include a strike over the failure to reach a labor contract. The professors have been without a contract since June.
