Faculty and administrators at Central Michigan University are back at the bargaining table to continue talks about the faculty contract.
University officials say the faculty’s decision to authorize any necessary job action is a “positive development.” This comes less than a week before classes start on Aug. 22.
On Monday evening, the faculty members voted to authorize any necessary job action to encourage the administration to continue bargaining. Job action could include a work stoppage.
Both sides formally requested to resume negotiations, and they meet at 10 a.m. to continue bargaining. The union and administration last met on July 14.
