MOUNT PLEASANT, Mich. (AP) - Talks likely will resume after Central Michigan University and its faculty got a report about their labor dispute from a fact-finder appointed by a state agency.
The non-binding report from Barry Goldman was released this week. The report reviewed several issues, including key ones that include salary adjustments and health care benefits. Goldman recommended the university's proposal on both of those issues.
Members of the Central Michigan University Faculty Association went on strike for most of Aug. 22, the first day of classes for the fall semester at the Mount Pleasant school. A judge ordered faculty members back to work but they are still allowed to demonstrate.
The faculty group says its previous contract expired June 30 with disputes continuing over wages and other issues.
