YSU faculty unanimously gives union strike authorization

Tuesday, August 22, 2017


Youngstown State University's faculty union unanimously voted in favor of a strike authorization at today's meeting.

A strike authorization vote, however, doesn’t mean there will be a strike.

The authorization gives the union the option to call for a 10-day strike notice. Union members would discuss and vote on a strike at a subsequent meeting.

This vote comes after heated negotiation discussions about contracts.
