Eastern Michigan University faculty union hold strike vote Tuesday

Faculty at Eastern Michigan University are weighing a potential strike against the school after the union contract with the college expired last week.

Members of the EMU-American Association of University Professors plans to convene Tuesday to vote to authorize a strike after the union said its efforts to find a deal with the school were met with delays, canceled meetings, and lengthy response times to proposals.

If approved, the strike could go into effect as soon as Wednesday.

The school administration called the breakdown of negotiations “unfortunate” and said a strike would harm students by disrupting classes just a week into the semester. Classes are expected to resume after Labor Day this week.
