    Oakland University, professors reach deal for new contract; classes resume


    The start of Labor Day weekend brought a labor agreement between Oakland University and its professors, ending a two-day strike. 

    On Saturday morning, the OU chapter of the American Association of University Professors and university negotiators announced they had reached a new contract, which means classes will start immediately at OU. 

    Negotiations had continued through Friday night as issues remained, the union representing faculty said.

    “Oakland University and its faculty, through their union, restate their commitment to offering our students a superior educational experience by focusing our collective energies on engaging in what we value most — serving our students and facilitating their success,” according to a joint statement from the union and university negotiators.

    The two sides agreed to do whatever they can to make up for the delays in teaching since the strike began Thursday.
