From staff reports

AFSCME Local 1699 has provided Ohio University with a 10-day notice of their intent to strike if a new Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) cannot be reached. The current CBA expires March 1 at 5:01 PM.

The university is prepared to initiate a continuity plan if a new CBA cannot be reached, according to Linda Lonsinger, senior director of human resources. 

"Our main priorities are to provide vital services to our students, and ensure the health and safety of all employees and students," according to a memo* written by Lonsinger that was sent to the University community Friday. 

In the event of a work stoppage, classes and university support services will continue and although some services may be at reduced levels, residence halls will continue to be cleaned.

Hudson Health Center will continue its normal operating hours and services.  Ohio University Police officers will continue their normal operations.

For answers to questions that students, faculty, and staff may have about a work stoppage, a special university Web site has been developed.
