Following the unions’ announcement of a strike date, Ithaca College released a statement about the negotiations.
The Ithaca College bargaining team is disappointed that the contingent faculty unions have announced that they have voted to authorize a strike.
The college is committed to negotiating a collective bargaining agreement. The parties are meeting, and progress is occurring at each session.
We are disheartened and frustrated at the adversarial tone, misleading allegations, and willingness to disrupt the learning environment for our students.
