EMU Faculty Suspends Strike; Negotiations Resume

Ypsilanti, MI – Eastern Michigan University's faculty union members have suspended their strike for 24 hours.
The suspension of the strike was announced late last night. Contract talks resumed this morning, and professors have returned to their classrooms for at least today.
EMU spokesman Ward Mullens says the university is pleased to be back at the bargaining table, and says talks could continue beyond the 24-hour strike suspension period if sufficient progress is made toward a new contract with the faculty.
EMU's faculty went on strike September first. Fall classes began September 6th.
