SIUC Strike Enters Another Day

November 09, 2011

University and union bargaining teams will head back to the table Wednesday morning, after failing to reach an agreement again on Thursday.

In a joint statement from the Faculty Association and the SIUC Administration, leaders say a 12-hour round of negotiations yesterday failed to produce a tentative agreement.

Striking workers and their supporters have been on the picket lines since last Thursday, and students have held protests this week on campus.

Administrators say they're doing what they can to fill classes with qualified substitutes, but many students say those subs aren't getting the job done.
