Professors at the University of Illinois at Springfield have taken to picket lines today after voting to strike last night.
Kristie Barnwell, the Vice President of UIS United Faculty and Associate Professor of History discusses the core reasons for the strike.
It's not the central issue in the walkout but Barnwell says faculty types notice the higher ups are faring better on payday.
UIS Spokesman Derek Schnapp released a statement saying quote - “This is disappointing, but progress is being made in negotiations, and our campus will carry on in pursuit of our core mission”.
The work to reach a satisfactory agreement must continue.” More talks are set for Friday.
