Non-tenured U of I faculty on strike

Posted: Updated:

URBANA - Members of the union that represents non-tenured University of Illinois faculty are now on strike.

Shawn Gilmore, president of the Nontenure-Track Faculty Coalition Local 6546 said he's not sure how many are not working, but said the majority voted to support the strike.

The two sides are trying to find common ground on a contract they've been negotiating since October 2014. The union plans to strike Wednesday and then return to work.
