YSU Faculty Strike

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (AP) — Classes resumed Thursday at Youngstown State University following a three-day strike by faculty members that centered on pay and related issues.

The university announced the school and the union reached “an understanding for the general framework on a new three-year contract.” The parties will “work out details for a tentative agreement.”

Terms were not disclosed.

A fact-finder had recommended that faculty members get a 6% pay increase over three years. School officials said that didn’t take into account financial challenges created by the coronavirus pandemic, but union officials countered the school was projecting its financial situation to be more dire than it is.
