Union rejects Central Michigan contract terms

MOUNT PLEASANT, Mich. (AP) - The union representing faculty at Central Michigan University has rejected contract terms offered by the school's administration.

Faculty Association President Laura Frey said Friday that the contract is unacceptable.

The Mount Pleasant school said in a release that the contract terms accepted recommendations from an independent fact finder.

Both sides received the fact finder's non-binding report last week. The report reviewed issues that included salary adjustments and health care benefits. The fact finder recommended the university's proposal on both of those issues.

Professors went on strike for most of Aug. 22, the first day of classes for the fall semester. A judge ordered them back to work but they are still allowed to demonstrate.

The faculty group says its previous contract expired June 30.
