Attorney releases fact finder's report to YSU

Posted: Updated:
YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio -

The attorney responsible for the fact finder's report issued it to YSU on Tuesday evening. 

The YSU faculty will meet on Monday to discuss the report and vote to whether it will accept or reject the attorney's recommendations. 

Voting will end on Wednesday. 

If the faculty or the administration rejects the fact finder's report, the executive committee and negotiating team may issue a 10-day strike notice. 

The union released a statement earlier in the school year that says if the faculty does not meet their proposed salaries and changes to course load policies, they will strike.

The OEA says YSU has lost roughly 10 percent of its full-time faculty over the last 10 years, which the union blames partly on the increased workload and lower take-home pay. 

Linda Strom, YSU-OEA spokesperson, said that YSU's faculty "are still hopeful that we can achieve a contract that is fair and supports quality research, teaching, and engagement at YSU."

YSU faculty have been working without a contract since classes began August 23.
