Faculty Strikes At Michigan University

MOUNT PLEASANT, Mich., Aug. 22 (UPI) — Professors at a Michigan university went on strike as administrators prepared a court case against their union and students wondered about their classes.

The 600-plus members of the faculty union at Central Michigan University began a strike Sunday evening, just 12 hours before classes were to begin, the Detroit Free Press reported.

“In the past, we have always been able to reach a settlement but it seems that this new administration isn’t looking to work with faculty to settle a contract,” Faculty Association President Laura Frey said in a statement.

“Unfortunately, students end up being negatively impacted.”

School administrators said they would be filing a court injunction against what they called an illegal work stoppage.

“The impact of the [Faculty Association's] action places an unfair burden on students who want to graduate in a timely fashion, pursue graduate school or launch successful careers,” the administration said in a statement.
