Oakland University in Michigan's Strike Ends

School is back in session after a weeklong break.


The professors' strike at Oakland University in Michigan ended today after the faculty and the administration tentatively agreed on a three-year contract, the Chronicle of Higher Education reports. On Wednesday, a judge had ordered the two sides to reconvene negotiations after talks stalled.

The contract, according to the report, includes a limit on the use of full-time professors who aren't on the tenure track; protection of faculty members' intellectual property; and options for two healthcare plans. Professors will skip raises this year and give up two days of pay.

The contract must be apporved by a faculty vote.
