Wright State Strike Ends As Officials Reach Tentative Agreement

Feb 11, 2019

After 20 days, the faculty union strike at Wright State University has ended.

With the help of a federal mediator, union and administration negotiators reached a tentative agreement late Sunday night.

Details of the deal have not yet been released, but in a statement Wright State President Cheryl Schrader said “both parties made substantial concessions to help move the university forward.”

Union President Marty Kich said faculty members will return to work Monday.

"I am sure all our members are glad to be going back to the classroom where we hope things will return to normal for our students as soon as possible," said Kich.

The Wright State Board of Trustees is scheduled to meet in executive session to discuss the agreement Monday at 5:30 p.m.
