An Isabella County judge has ordered striking members of the Central Michigan University Faculty Association back to work on Tuesday. The more than 600 members of the union representing tenured and tenure-track faculty members walked out Monday, forcing the cancellation of some classes. CMU filed for the injunction late this morning, calling the strike illegal. The Morning Sun reports that by mid-afternoon, trial court Judge Mark Duthie issued the back-to-work order. The newspaper says a hearing on the request to make the injunction permanent is set for Friday at 9 a.m.in Judge Paul Chamberlain’s courtroom. In the meantime, the faculty and administration reportedly are far apart in their contract negotiations on items like benefits and pay. The two sides are working through a mediator. The faculty has been without a contract since June 30th. (MRN)
