Ithaca College contingent faculty union set date of strike vote

The Ithaca College contingent faculty union announced it will hold a strike vote Feb. 13 and 14 on campus.

For over a year, the Ithaca College administration has been in a contentious bargaining battle with two contingent faculty unions, part-time and full-time. The part time–faculty union has been stuck on two difficult aspects of the contracts: job security and compensation.

In December, the college’s bargaining committee released a statement expressing disappointment at the possibility of a strike vote.
