With strike threat looming, Wayne State and professors talk through the holidays

With the threat of a faculty strike looming, both sides in Wayne State University contract talks say they'll continue working toward a deal. The two sides have met over the holidays, and additional bargaining sessions are scheduled. In the meantime, the faculty contract that expired last summer has been extended once again, this time through mid-February. A university spokesman confirmed the contract extension, and says talks between the two sides are “ongoing.”
