Union tells U. of Illinois it may strike

CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (AP) — The union that represents about 800 building and food-service workers at the University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign says its members could strike soon if they don’t get a new contract.

Service Employees International Union Local 73 on Monday informed the university of its intent to strike.

SEIU senior field organizer Ricky Baldwin called the notice a “last resort.” But The News-Gazette in Champaign (http://bit.ly/W9hlrS ) reports the union also said it plans to continue negotiating.

The union and the Urbana-Champaign campus have been negotiating since June 2012. They brought in a federal mediator late last year.

Union and university officials are scheduled to meet in a negotiating session Tuesday.
